SOCI 4362 has a finalproject due called the "Social Autopsy" Students are asked to disect his or her neighborhood and how it pertains to health population.Pick a neighborhood in the proximity of where you live.

This is somewhat undefined. Generally speaking, it should be a residential area that is bordered by a few major streets. 1-2 square miles would be about right, but depending on population density, this could vary.
