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 Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 18.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the E Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
23.8% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
97.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also, in the E Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave neighborhood, walking to work is a real
option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals
walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 12.4%
of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than
we found in 95.3% of American neighborhoods. Get ready
to put on your walking shoes if you move here!
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the E Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.5% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 68.2% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
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 Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave neighborhood has more single mother
households than 95.0% 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.

Spanish and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 60.8% have Mexican ancestry.
E Tulare Ave / S Winery Ave is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
