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: Diversity
Did you know that the W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave neighborhood has more
Arab and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 6.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Arab ancestry and 73.8% have Mexican ancestry.
W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily

Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 23.3%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.0%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 67.3% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other

four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.

of the adult residents in the W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 95.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the W Mcdowell Rd / N 43rd Ave neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 4.5% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
