Sounds about right. That’s why I like to frame issues regionally, if possible.
We would need a way of subdividing zip codes to get that granular.
The map as labeled above is already by census tract. Just by looking in Minneapolis you can see the regions are much smaller than zip codes.
That’s about as small as it gets.
