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: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 2.2% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Dougherty / Komandorski Village neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
As one would expect in a considerably wealthy neighborhood such as this,
Dougherty / Komandorski Village also has one of the lowest ratings of child
poverty in the nation.
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the Dougherty / Komandorski Village neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.7%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Also, the Dougherty / Komandorski Village neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 90.3% of California neighborhoods
for executive living, based on the wealthy, educated professionals,
executives, and managers who choose to reside here, the spacious homes
that are prominent features of the real estate in the neighborhood,
and the high real estate appreciation rates found here relative to
other neighborhoods in the state.
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 Dougherty / Komandorski Village

the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is

Notable & Unique: Occupations
The Dougherty / Komandorski Village neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than

and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.

Iranian and Asian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 23.2% have Asian ancestry.
Dougherty / Komandorski Village is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
