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: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave
In the Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.4% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.2% of the neighborhoods
The Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (81.4%) than found in
99.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
In addition, an extraordinary 44.9% of the residents of the
Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Also, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 3.6% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of Arkansas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.6% 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
97.6% 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.

way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
22.2% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
96.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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
Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, there are more people living in the Arkansas State U-Main Campus / E Johnson Ave neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (56.0%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
