Statiscally Speaking...

What do you want to know about Burbank? The odds of your neighbor being over 80? (The answer: slim.) Median number of rooms in houses and apartments in Burbank? (Scintillating!) Means of transportation to work? (Take a wild guess which is most popular. Hint: It's not the pogo stick.)

So, check out one of my favorite websites: City Data. Some stuff here is useless, but some of it's extraordinarily interesting and useful, and once you start comparing it to other cities, it becomes geometrically more interesting. ("Geometrically" may not be the word I'm looking for, but you get the idea. The information becomes less flat, more spherical.)
