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: 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
E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 34.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
34.8% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.7% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 82.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
E Brundage Ln / Union Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 74.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood is unique for having just
1.8% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 98.7% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Also, the E Brundage Ln / Union Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (68.7%) than found in
97.7% 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.
