I am working on my personal statement for grad school, and I am wondering whether this sentence is grammatically correct:
I then conducted eight sets of observation to compare the social life and daily interactions in Hispanic neighborhoods with those in non-Hispanic neighborhoods.
I am concerned about the usage of "those" before "in non-Hispanic neighborhoods".
compare X in A with X in B
is the right structure, but in the sentence I used X is relatively long. Therefore, I think I may not want to restate X after the word "with", and instead I use the pronoun "those".
I am wondering whether it is OK to use "those" here to substitute "social life and daily interactions".
