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: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the De Luz neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 27.3% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the De Luz
neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.8% 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
97.8% 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.
Also, in the De Luz neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
22.9% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
If you are planning to retire in California, this neighborhood
should be on your must-see list. For many reasons, De Luz
may be considered a retiree's dream neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis and metrics, it's peaceful and quiet, has above
average safety from crime compared to other neighborhoods in California,
while also offering a diverse range of housing options. This, along with
the vibrant mix of very educated seniors and other age groups who choose
to live here, makes the neighborhood more
retiree-friendly than 97.1% of neighborhoods in
CA. If a California retirement is in your future, this neighborhood
should be one of the places you visit.
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
De Luz neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.5%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the De Luz neighborhood has more
Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry.
De Luz is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.1% 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 96.9% of the neighborhoods in America.
