Talk:South Chicago, Chicago
The median income is greatly inflated for the area
Please cite your actual sources for the median income level. A specific source is preferred as the average for all census tracts combined in South Chicago is equal to approximately 26,149. This is determined by first identifying all the census tracts that exist in the boundaries of South Chicago. Which includes tracts 460100, 460200, 460300, 460400, 460500, 460600, 460700, 460800, 460900, 461000. These can be located here.
Second discovering the data per tract leaves the following numbers: 9853, 18542, 24375, 20661, 32500, 36840, 36926, 30187, 20963, 30650.
These can be found here:
A simple average can be determined by adding all the results above and dividing by the number of items. This has not been adjusted yet to give the initial poster time to justify their reasoning for the inflated rate. However, it is critical to many in the area that data be posted correctly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:33, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
