Census data reveal best- and worst-faring neighborhoods in Philadelphia

    Census data are more than just numbers. The information collected can give us clues to trends happening neighborhood- state- and nationwide.

    Metropolis has used the 2010 Census data to track progress in Philadelphia’s most changing neighborhoods — some for the better, some for the worse.

    The twopart feature evaluates the data from the up-and-coming neighborhoods near to Center City and those that have seen increases and poverty and a decline in homeownership.
