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: Occupations
There are more people living in the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (27.3%) 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: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 56.2%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 98.6% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
Also of note, 81.3% 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.
Also, the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood is unique for having just
2.3% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.

three. But households in the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood buck
32.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
