City Data on 94110 is pretty amazing, though all the data is from the 2000 census which would normally be fine but we've had an insane housing boom in the last 6 years so all that data is crazy out of date.

It's interesting to compare to my old neighborhood in Austin . For one thing you can see the crazy college-dominated population in Austin and then they all leave. Also the rent spectrum in Austin is very sharp because it's market controlled, the rent spectrum in SF is a much broader histogram because of rent control.

Finally check out the neighborhood my mom used to live - Houston / Bellaire - you can actually see the population spike from the baby boom (I think that's what that is), and there's a huge dip at college age because everyone leaves the area to pursue their lives.
