Mission Rd / Center Ave 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).

Mission Rd / Center Ave real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999.

Mission Rd / Center Ave has a 17.0% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 79.8% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference.

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 Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood in Kodiak are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 66.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 20.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 58.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood, 39.7% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 28.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants (16.3%), and 14.4% 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 Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood in Kodiak, AK, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (38.3%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (10.5%), and residents who report Irish roots (10.0%), and some of the residents are also of Native American ancestry (6.8%), along with some Scottish ancestry residents (5.2%), among others. In addition, 39.6% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 61.0% of households. Some people also speak Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region) (35.5%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Mission Rd / Center Ave neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (64.6% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (64.8%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (17.9%) and 15.5% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
