MAPPED: Richest, Poorest Neighborhoods in North Canton

A site called richblockspoorblocks.com uses census data so you can see your neighborhood's income

When you look at the North Canton area's highest and lowest income neighborhoods, those high-income territories are on the outskirts of the city. It's true, according to U.S. Census information.

The information comes from a website called richblockspoorblocks.com, which offers median household income for each census tract, provided by the 2007-2011 American Community Survey. 

The highest income neighborhoods ($69,000-$83,000 median household income) in the North Canton area are outlying the city. Those are places like Plain, Lake and Jackson townships.

Areas closest to downtown North Canton have a median household income of $45,000-$50,000. 

For the most part, the city of North Canton falls right down the middle when it comes to the chart's high and low income scale. Travel farther south to Canton and you'll see the city is mostly falling into the lowest income scale.

Not affluent but middle to low icome for the most part. The school's copious administrators are at the high end as are many of the union protected teachers. They want to extract more taxes via the Nov. levy. More empty homes, when taxes are unpaid & the school is oblivious continuing its waste,while having its hand out to struggling homeowners.

Good point Helen. There is a large solid portion of the NC population that is not getting represented in this winner take all system of voting on tax increases. Middle-low income (retirees/single workers) are getting beat up on darn near every election.
