Background info resource


Recommended Posts

The LA Times gathered up a ton of demographic and economic data, and broke it down all the way to neighborhoods or sometimes smaller cities, in the LA metro area.  It's a wonderful resource:




For example, for a character concept I'm fleshing out...I wanted a fairly high income, but also very diverse neighborhood.  Hmm...flip round...yeah...South Pasadena will work.  Good combination of very diverse (white, Asian, Latino anyway) and high income.  


It is only LA, but it's a wonderful resource if you're ok with that being where the character grew up.  Most neighborhood guides don't go into anything like this kind of detail;  it's more like visitors' points of interest, and not a lot more.  But if anyone happens to know of other major cities, where someone's done this kind of breakdown?  I'd love to hear about it.
