Roseville Neighborhoods Mapped by Wealth: An Interactive Map

Check out the map to compare income levels in neighborhoods throughout Roseville, and the rest of the country.

This map is a visual depiction of income levels across Roseville. The cooler colors represent higher incomes and the warmer colors represent lower ones. 

The map was created by a website called Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks, which has mapped out "how much money people make in every neighborhood in every city in America."

As you can see, Roseville's richest areas are in west Roseville and Granite Bay, most notably around Woodcreek Oaks and Junction boulevards and a pocket around Maidu Park. The lower-income areas are mostly in central Roseville in the Theiles Manor neighborhood near Douglas Boulevard and Riverside Avenue.

How are the colors identified? Lighter is poorer?
