Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Kayenta,
the Chilchinbito neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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, 90.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Chilchinbito is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 89.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 2.48 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 99.0% of America.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Chilchinbito neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 51.8%, which is higher than 98.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Chilchinbito neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 16.8% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.9% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Chilchinbito
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 98.8% of the neighborhoods
The Chilchinbito neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (65.5%) than found in
96.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, the Chilchinbito neighborhood is unique for having just
4.2% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.7% of America's neighborhoods.
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 97.8% 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.
