On a neighborhood level, this is a bad measure (to say the least). To use the American Household survey to determine average rents and incomes does not work because it does not have enough representation (or participants) from each neighborhood to make even a ballpark figure regarding rents or incomes... There is much better data being collected on Baltimoreans locally.

Would be oh so much better with a legend to go with it.
