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, 90.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Chilchinbito is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 86.4% 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: People
The Chilchinbito neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.0% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 69.5% 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.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 94.8%
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 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
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, 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 47.3%, which is higher than 98.3% of all U.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 98.9% 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: 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 16.4% 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 98.8% 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: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Chilchinbito
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 96.4% of all American neighborhoods.
