Civic Commons: Zip Code Roulette

So when does your zip code become a real health problem? How about when it means you’re going to die years earlier than your neighbor a few zip codes away? At least some data suggests that, for instance, living in the Hough neighborhood of Cleveland (44103) means you’ll die much younger than 15 minutes east in Lyndhurst (44124). Like twenty years younger. Of course statistics are sometimes slippery, and context means everything. But the alarm bells went off at the Civic Commons and Dan and Noelle decided to find out more about this zip code roulette. Join them as they listen to a portion of a Cleveland City Club address by former King County (Washington) Executive Ron Sims and then talk to Cleveland City Planner Fred Collier about the issues behind these attention-grabbing statistics.
