VARIATION BY NEIGHBORHOOD: "As is the case across the United States and California, HDI (Human Development Index) scores vary dramatically by geography in Sonoma County—in Roseland, the HDI is 3.38, whereas in East Bennett Valley, it is 8.65. This gap is far larger than the gaps that separate demographic groups in the aggregate. The difference in the HDI between these neighborhoods translates to nearly a nine-year gap in life expectancy, a more than $48,000 difference in earnings, and a 47.9-percentage-point gap in bachelor’s degree attainment".
