When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Chilchinbito neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 97.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Chilchinbito is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 90.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Navajo at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 2.48 residents per square mile, Chilchinbito is less crowded than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 48.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the Chilchinbito neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
More residents of the Chilchinbito neighborhood live here
today that also were living in this same neighborhood five years ago
than is found in 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. This neighborhood
is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and
have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.1%
of the adult residents in the Chilchinbito neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, the Chilchinbito neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 96.7% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 61.1% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.7% of employed workers living in the
Chilchinbito neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.2% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
