NeighborhoodScout uses nearly 200 characteristics to build a neighborhood profile for each and every neighborhood (census tract) in America. These include: school quality, housing costs, crime rates, income levels, the age, size and style of homes, the density of buildings, rental areas versus owner occupied, the proportion of families with children, the ages of persons in the neighborhood, ethnic and racial makeup, educational levels, languages spoken, types of careers of those living in the neighborhood, numbers of farms, coastal setting, and many, many more. This set of characteristics captures the true look, feel, and character of places like never before, allowing extraordinarily accurate neighborhood profile matches to be instantly calculated for the customer.
The data Location Inc uses for NeighborhoodScout is the latest neighborhood statistics available from several leading government sources. These sources include the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the U.S. Department of Justice, the National Center for Education Statistics, and the U.S. Geological Service, among others. We bring information from these different agencies together in one giant database and then we use our PhD-level expertise to create new, useful profiles and insights about neighborhoods, cities, and towns all across America. No one else does it like NeighborhoodScout.
NeighborhoodScout applies a patented algorithm to measure the similarity of neighborhoods based on customer-specified criteria, such that exact matches to what the customer wants are delivered instantly. This revolutionary approach is applied to the nearly 200 characteristics used to describe each of the more than 61,000 neighborhood profiles (i.e. census tracts) in America to create accurate matches, no matter what the customer is looking for in a neighborhood. This unique approach offers customers a level of service available nowhere else.
NeighborhoodScout was created by Dr. Schiller, who earned his PhD from Clark University's Graduate School of Geography, America's oldest and largest geography PhD program. Dr. Schiller was previously a scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Atomic Energy Complex, and also Director of Science for The Nature Conservancy's Tennessee Chapter. A team of experts in computer mapping and analysis and web design, join Dr. Schiller at the helm of NeighborhoodScout.
NeighborhoodScout uses census tracts as the basis for neighborhood profile matches, allowing specificity of matches better than broad zip code areas, because zip code areas often include several census tracts. When distinct census tracts are blended together into a larger zip code area, the data reflects their average conditions and often gives a false sense of the area. Using census tracts makes great matches possible, and helps customers find the areas that are best for them and their families.
Census tracts are small, relatively permanent subdivisions of a county that are defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Census tracts usually have between 2,500 and 8,000 persons and are defined to contain areas with homogeneous population characteristics, including economic status, and living conditions.
The extent of individual census tracts varies widely depending on the density of settlement.
