What's the best method for evaluating supply & demand characteristics for rental income properties?

I would like to better understand the competitive forces driving occupancy rates, when comparing single family home rentals across certain zip codes.

Schools are big, families want their kids to go to higher rated schools and colleges too, a lot of students live off campus so finding something near either of those two will help.

It varies a lot from community to community, but where I am the price of the rentals seem to be driven by the proximity to workplaces/freeways/universities, the local school if it is a family house and the amenities of the complex if it is a multiunit. The demand for rentals are often a mix of all of these factors in my area.
