The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Klukwan neighborhood in Haines are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 41.2% of the neighborhoods in America. With 20.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 56.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Klukwan neighborhood, 43.3% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 40.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (20.0%), and 10.0% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Klukwan neighborhood in Haines, AK, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Native American (59.1%). There are also a number of people of Welsh ancestry (6.1%), and residents who report Italian roots (6.1%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (6.1%), along with some German ancestry residents (1.5%), among others.

The most common language spoken in the Klukwan neighborhood is English, spoken by 76.9% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Native American languages and Italian.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Klukwan neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (77.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
