Income and Children in London

February 26, 2016 by

London has highly concentrated wealth in its central boroughs, with average incomes in Kensington and Chelsea and the City of London at £137,000 and £117,000, respectively. Barking and Dagenham has the lowest average income: £22,800. Income in London is highly, inversely correlated with the number of children per adult. Barking and Dagenham has almost twice the number of children per adult (.33) compared to Kensington and Chelsea (.17). While the idea that wealthier families have fewer children has been extensively studied, the scale of difference here is quite striking.

In Which Part of Beijing Are There The Most College Graduates?

December 25, 2015 by

While the districts of Xicheng and Dongcheng represent the core of Beijing and have real estate prices on par with many of the most expensive cities in the world, the part of Beijing with the greatest percentage of people with a college degree is in Southeastern Haidian District, where most of the top-tiered universities, like Tsinghua University, Peking University and Renmin University of China, are located. Certain sub-districts in Chaoyang, where most Fortune 500 companies and expatriates live, also have a higher percentage of college-educated population compared with other areas.

Which Neighborhood In San Francisco Has the Highest Average Income?

November 27, 2015 by

What neighborhood has the highest average income in the City of San Francisco? Surprisingly, it’s not the well-known neighborhoods in the Northern part of San Francisco like Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights, Cow Hollow or the Marina. It’s actually West Twin Peaks and Noe Valley, both in the Southern part of the city. We would surmise this has something to do with the explosion of wealth in Silicon Valley and the desire of dot-commers to live in San Francisco. Worth noting is Portrero Hill and Bernal Heights, also in the Southern part of the city and also with significant average income.

Of course, if you go North to Marin or South to San Mateo County, you will find neighborhoods with substantially higher average incomes.

News From Webster Pacific

A Quick Note

Webster Pacific has been providing strategic and financial consulting services for over 10 years. We had a mini-celebration earlier this year to mark this milestone. My partner Susan Beans and I wanted to reach out to our network and share this news, as well as to give you the elevator pitch on what we do. Here goes:

We provide consulting services in three areas: business strategy, business intelligence and interim-CFO services. We do this work because we love the clarity that a data-driven approach can provide, we love solving problems and making progress and, finally, we love serving our clients.

Over half of our work for the past seven years has been in the realm of K-12 education, in both charter schools and private schools.

Recently, we have had the opportunity to develop an expertise in work that helps our client make better site selection decisions. This work involves geographic software, supply research and demographic demand information. We are calling this work demand-supply-catchment analysis.

A generic example of our work follows below, but for now I will close and say thank you for your support.

Example of Demand-Supply-Catchment Analysis

Greater Boston Area Demand-Supply-Catchment Analysis

The shaded map above shows the density of a certain age group from households with income over a threshold amount per square mile in various neighborhoods in the Great Boston Area. Triangles represent competitive retail locations, grouped into two tiers of quality. The red ring represents a “catchment,” based upon a particular drive time around one particular retail location (the green triangle).

A full catchment analysis would calculate the demand-supply imbalance for a catchment around each neighborhood and rank the neighborhoods based upon attractiveness (i.e. the greatest imbalance).

Using this approach, Webster Pacific can help clients in a variety of businesses to navigate site selection and better understand the markets they are considering.
