Clearwater City and Pinellas County Statistical Anomoly

As the result of this survey, another unusual condition was observed. Clearwater City and Pinella County's population is a lot more white than their counterparts in the other Florida urban areas of Miami and Tampa. In looking for a cause for this anomoly, we also looked at median home value. Sometimes, real estate values emphasize America's economic/racial divide. A scan of the result shows that property value is not the reason for this anomoly.

*The US Census Bureau apparently allows the double counting of white and latino.

As a former Philadelphian, I am obligated to report that Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater is the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies (Major League Baseball).
