Demographic score calculation

This score examines the percentage of each racial/ethnic category in a neighborhood and compares it to the overall city percentages.

Calculation:

  • For each racial/ethnic category, the neighborhood percentage was subtracted from the city percentage.
  • The absolute value of each result was calculated.
  • The sum of all the results within a neighborhood is the neighborhood's demographic score.

Understanding the demographic score

The chart uses the demographic score for both the x and y axis. This means the neighborhoods will all fall on a line.

  • Neighborhoods closer to the upper right of the chart have lower demographic scores.
  • Neighborhoods closer to the lower left of the chart have higher demographic scores. 

Lower scores

Indicates the percentages of a neighborhood’s racial/ethnic categories more closely match the percentages of the city’s racial/ethnic categories.

Identical score

If a neighborhood and the city have an identical racial/ethnic composition, then the demographic score will be zero.

Larger score

Indicates the neighborhood less closely matches the city.
