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: 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
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 Warm Springs neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of 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, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 40.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Warm Springs neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.3% 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.
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.
