Identify similar cities for geographic profiles
I would like to be able to easily see entities that have similar characteristics to the one I search for. Similarity could be restricted to identical entity types (places, metro areas, districts)
For example, I search for Tucson, AZ (place) https://censusreporter.org/profiles/16000US0477000-tucson-az/
I would like to see a list of similar Places could be presented for the major categories/buckets displayed:

NYT used job postings as a similarity measure. Is there data on job types from the Census that could be used? https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/04/03/upshot/what-is-your-citys-twin.html
Yes, this is an interesting idea, and one we've talked about to some extent. We'd love to hear more from other members of our community about how this might be fleshed out.
