The U.S. Census is a sociological project identifying the demographic characteristics (population, age, ethnicity, income, education, government, business, etc.) for people across the United States. Information can be analyzed in many different ways, including by local address.
Use this website from the U.S. Census to enter your town's zip code and from the resulting page, choose the buttons on the left to get a summary of the characteristics of your home area. Also the tables for your "geography" (zip code location) feature more detailed information. Create a summary report from the information you have found there. Use the sociological imagination to reflect on how the conditions of your hometown relates to your life. Discuss the statuses and roles in each institution or category that appears to exemplify the your home region. Here is an example of what your report might vaguely resemble.
