HoCo Hoods by the Numbers

By now most people know that HoCo is the wealthiest county in the wealthiest state but what you may not know is how your own HoCo neighborhood stacks up against the county in general. For instance, the median household income in HoCo is $101,003 but in Wilde Lake and Town Center it’s $71,552. Asians make up 11% of the county population but they make up 23% of the population in Clarksville. 44% of the adult population in Clarksville has a master’s degree or higher while in Savage it’s only 15%.

How do I know this stuff?

I went to this cool inactive map on The New York Times website.

The map breaks down the latest US Census data by census tract. These don’t always follow recognized neighborhood boundaries but they come pretty close.
