I'm assembling data for a piece (or a series of pieces) on 'Death in the Big City' - or 'Why Do So Many People Drown in the Blue Castle Moats?'. I can't choose between them yet. I've done the crime stats already and I have the city list - what I'm looking for now is a little advice on which data points from this Census Page are of interest.
So far I have:
Population, percent change, 1990 to 2000
Persons with a disability, age 5+, 2000
Homeownership rate, 2000
Per capita money income, 1999
Persons below poverty, percent, 1999
I'd like to keep it to 10 items so I need 3 more (violent crime rate isn't on the Census Report).
