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 Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 99.9% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (83.2%) than found in
99.4% 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, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 50.6%
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.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 97.7%
of the adult residents in the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (40.4%) 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 Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood has more
African and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 12.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 14.6% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
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 Chambers St / Stonegate Dr neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
23.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
