Where Do the Children Play?

Last year the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted the songwriter who rhetorically asked, “Where Do the Children Play?” This year, the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens got his answer in a report from RealtyTrac®, the nation’s leading source for comprehensive housing data.

The new study ranks U.S. zip codes with populations over 5,000 that have the highest percentage of residents age 5 and under. The data is based on 2012 statistics compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Here are the top ten neighborhoods. And, in case the Hall of Famer now asks, “What is the Average Median Value of the Properties Where the Children Play?,” RealtyTrac offers that information, too.
