One of the more intriguing lists on this website is the "Top 100" category; there is an exhaustive comparative listing of how different cities compare, among a dizzying number of variables.
Here's the Top 100 category. Palo Alto appears on some of the 100 list categories - e.g. we rank 18th in "Most people having Doctorate Degrees" and 53rd in "Highest Adjusted Gross Income" (Atherton placed 2nd). There are many, many other categories.
One of the categories ranked East Palo Alto 86th, in the "Number of Cars Per Household".
One improvement in theselistings might be to aggregate smaller cities into their constituent regions, so that we could see where various regions stand in these same categories.
