Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Fresno,
the Tulare St / G St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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 Tulare St / G St neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 28.5% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.7% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
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
Tulare St / G St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 18.1%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Tulare St / G St neighborhood about it; they already know. 23.1%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.9%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
In addition, the Tulare St / G St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (64.3%) than found in
96.6% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the Tulare St / G St neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 54.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
