Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Anaconda,
the Warm Springs neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Warm Springs
neighborhood, analysis shows that 26.0% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.8% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Warm Springs neighborhood has more
Austrian and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 2.0% have Finnish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Warm Springs neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 50.6% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.2% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
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 4.76 residents per square mile, Warm Springs is less crowded than 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Warm Springs neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 40.0%, which is higher than 97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 9.9% of the people in the Warm Springs
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Warm Springs neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
