Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world, with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long time, creating a sense of cohesiveness?

This neighborhood is really made up of people who know each other, don't move often, and have lived here in this very neighborhood for quite a while.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the Kaka neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 78.1% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 100.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Kaka neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. The Kaka neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (100.0%) than found in 99.9% 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.

Also, the Kaka neighborhood is unique for having just 0.0% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.5% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

The Kaka neighborhood has a greater proportion of government workers living in it than 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. This is a unique feature of this neighborhood, and one that shapes its character.

Furthermore, more people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Kaka neighborhood than in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many laborers and manufacturers.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Kaka neighborhood has more Native American and Swedish ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 78.8% of this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 6.1% have Swedish ancestry.

Kaka is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 71.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Native American languages at home. This is a higher percentage than 100.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 1 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 99.5% of America. One of the notable things about Kaka is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.

In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Kaka neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 99.3% of all American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Kaka neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 36.0%, which is higher than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

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.
