From: The canary in the city: indicator groups as predictors of local rent increases

Figure 2

Selecting an indicator group. (a) Income-profile distribution for users in Chicago. We assign an income profile to each user based on the census median income of the visited neighborhoods. The 10 percent ‘richest’ users represent the indicator group (green) while the 10 percent ‘poorest’ users function as a reference group (red). (b) For each neighborhood, we compare the number of unique indicator visitors (green) and the number of unique reference visitors (red) in 2012/2013 with the neighborhood’s median rent prices in 2012. Neighborhoods that bring together more indicator visitors show higher rent prices while more reference visitors indicate lower rent prices
