Rich Block, Poor Block: How Does Your Redmond Neighborhood Compare?

Do different parts of Redmond have different income levels? And how do the closest neighbors of Redmond residents compare? Read on to find the answer.

Drive through Redmond, and you will notice that some neighborhoods are more affluent than others. But just how wide is the disparity between different parts of town?

A new data-based website, Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks provides some answers to that question. The site uses U.S. census information compiled from the 2007-2011 American Community Survey to show median household income and monthly rents by census tract.

Are you surprised by any of the local data? Tell us in the comments section.

The data show that the median household income in Redmond ranges from $75,577 to $148,000 with the upper incomes in the northern part of the city.

The statewide middle-class range is listed as $52,508 to $64,322.

Median monthly rents range from $929 in part of Education Hill to $1,611 in the north.

It would be interesting to compare this to a Sad Block, Happy Block site (were there such a thing). "Surveys of the richest Americans show happiness scores identical to those of the Amish" Source: http://www.yesmagazine.org/new-economy/what-is-real-wealth

If you are rich in family, you are probably happier than if you are only rich in money.
