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 Church Ave / S Walnut Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 17.7%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Church Ave / S Walnut Ave neighborhood has more
Asian and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 26.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Asian ancestry and 7.9% have Haitian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: People
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 Church Ave / S Walnut Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 96.0% 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.
In addition, the E Church Ave / S Walnut Ave neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (59.6%) than found in
95.1% 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.
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 E Church Ave / S Walnut Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 18.7% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
