Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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.

From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the Gratiot Ave / Rosemary
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.7% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Gratiot Ave / Rosemary neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Gratiot Ave / Rosemary neighborhood has more single mother
households than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.

In fact, with 32.8% of the residential real estate vacant, the Gratiot Ave / Rosemary neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 95.4% 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.
The Neighbors: Income
There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a
neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the
federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with
a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower
than 81.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
With 28.9% of the children here below the federal poverty
line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 71.9%
of U.S. neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Occupations
The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you
are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have

of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is

(14.8%), and 7.0% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.
The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents,
our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
In the Gratiot Ave / Rosemary neighborhood in Detroit, MI, residents
most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish
