    I don't know, but I found the demographic funny in my 'hood

    White-100
    Black-0
    Hispanic-0

    I've always had my assumptions, but that proves it.

    1.2 X the National Average.

    Demographics of my neighborhood are:
    White = 95.4

    Black = 0

    Hispanic = 3.1

    I wonder if that will upset the two black guys that live down the street?

    The government's health risk score from industrial air pollution in your neighborhood is 0 times the average for neighborhoods nationwide. A number less than 1.0 means the risk is below the national average. If the number is 0, the neighborhood either has no residents or no pollution.

    Well this thread apparently proves two things:

    • The air in the East Coast is polluted thanks to the western states
    • There are no black people in the Northeast

    2.3 times the average.

    "High Pollution Advisory In Effect Thursday

    A high pollution advisory [HPA] is in effect for Thursday, December 15, 2005 from midnight until midnight. As a result, residents must refrain from wood burning in fireplaces and/or woodstoves during the advisory period.

    Extremely high levels of PM-10 and PM-2.5 (or particulate matter measuring 10 or 2.5 microns or less in size) are expected to reach or exceed the federal standard on Thursday.

    This brings us to five high pollution advisories for the month of December alone. Stagnant air and low moisture help to keep the &#8220;brown cloud&#8221; hanging over the Valley. Residents are strongly encouraged to help reduce pollution levels during this time."

    8.5 times the average. (yikes!)

    - Your neighborhood is not among the worst 5 percent nationally for health risk from industrial air pollution.
    - Your neighborhood is not among the worst 10 percent in your state for health risk from industrial air pollution.


    90.2% white
    3.9% black
    2 % hispanic

    2.7% smelly pirate whores ?!? ... I KNEW it.

    One thing about this area is there is a cholocate factory two blocks away.
    Sometimes the air is filled with the sweet smell of chocolate, then there are the times when somebody burns a batch and it smells like candy hell.

    How exactly are they getting the data for this? Seems suspect. Also interesting that they have "Hispanic" as a race category when, I believe, it is a sort of cultural category for the census (meaning any race can be hispanic). Anyway.....

    For home in NJ: 1.2 times
    white = 80.9
    black = 0
    hispanic = 0


    For school/home in VT: 0 times. HAHA.
    white = 96.4
    black = 0.9
    hispanic = 0.9
