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: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 67.0%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 99.7% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.6% of the neighborhoods
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (45.9%) 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 4.5% have Native American ancestry.
N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 7.0% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 98.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood buck
24.5% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 86.2% of the real estate in the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the N Oracle Rd / W Grant Rd neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
