It's interesting to me that the census subdivision regression (weighted) is generally above and much flatter than the CMA regression line. The intercept is nowhere close to the median income/median change in income crossing, unlike for the CMA regression.

Maybe at the subdivision level we're not really seeing the effects of catch-up growth, but instead we're seeing a larger inclusion of class differences? Commuting distances are greater than individual municipalities, so maybe there's some self-sorting by income between municipalities even though nearby areas are similarly-effected by investment.
