I was digging around in census data the other day, and in the process got drawn into the stats for our neighborhood. (Note that due to census boundaries, this is an expansive definition of the CD, including Madison Valley, Miller Park, Jackson Place, Judkins Park, and a chunk of Leschi.)
Here’s the stats as of this summer:
Our total population: 26,346 people
We’re very diverse: (city-wide stats in parenthesis)
- 43% White (67%)
- 32% African American (8%)
- 10% Asian (14%)
- 8% Hispanic (5%)
- 5% Other (5%)
- 1% Native American (1%)
The median household income of the neighborhood is $52,500 per year, a bit lower than the state-wide median of $60,010 and the city-wide median of $62,195.
Our income has risen since 2000, going up 27% over that time.
The highest earners live in Madison Valley, and the lowest in Squire Park.
