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.
The Chilchinbito neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (69.5%) than found in
97.8% 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
5.2% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 95.8% of America'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 47.3% of the residential real estate vacant, the Chilchinbito neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.3% 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 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
There are more people living in the Chilchinbito neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.2%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
