Supplementary notes

* The source defines neighborhood type in the following way:
Economic center: offers significant concentrations of employment and are often the urban cores of the cities in which they are located. Office buildings typically outnumber residential housing.
Emerging economic center: well-located but underutilized, they offer opportunities for ground-up development in what used to be single-family residential or low-density commercial land locations.
Mixed-use district: typically includes high-density housing and upscale retail areas situated near major employment cores.
High-end neighborhood: comprise in-town residential locations with high home values and apartment rents; conveniently located close to shops and restaurants. Characterized by single-family housing.
Stable neighborhood: historically working class neighborhoods with diverse housing types.
Challenged neighborhood: significantly lower home values and apartment rents, with aging infrastructure and minimal new development.
