Walkscore doesn't measure walkability; it measures geographic proximity to stuff. So the study is nonsense.

It would be more accurate to say "kids raised in proximity to amenities earn more money as adults" which sounds intuitively correct, especially because immigrants tend to be most concentrated in such locales, and immigrants tend to have much higher economic mobility than native-born.
