Mill Bay is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Kodiak, Alaska. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Mill Bay real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Mill Bay neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.

Mill Bay has a 15.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 77.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

Mill Bay is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery. In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation. In addition to being coastal, Mill Bay is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Mill Bay neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis. Residents of the Mill Bay neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 68.1% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.0% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Each year, fewer and fewer Americans make their living as farmers, foresters, or fishers. But the Mill Bay neighborhood truly stands out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers than 95.1% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Mill Bay neighborhood has more Native American and British ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 2.8% have British ancestry.

Mill Bay is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 18.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Mill Bay neighborhood in Kodiak are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 75.3% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 8.1% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 57.4% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

The most common language spoken in the Mill Bay neighborhood is English, spoken by 70.2% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region) and Spanish.

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 Mill Bay neighborhood in Kodiak, AK, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (22.0%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (13.5%), and residents who report Native American roots (13.2%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (9.6%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (6.9%), among others. In addition, 20.1% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

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 Mill Bay neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (68.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (66.0%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (16.1%) .
