Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 Chualar neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 20.8% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Chualar neighborhood has more Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 84.2% of this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.

Chualar is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 73.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

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 Chualar neighborhood has a highly unusual pattern of car ownership. Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's Analysis reveals that 30.2% of the households here have four, five, or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.7% of the neighborhoods in the nation.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Chualar neighborhood in Gonzales are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 70.5% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 13.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 57.0% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Chualar neighborhood, 24.7% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 22.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (21.6%), and 20.8% in farming, forestry, or commercial fishing.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Chualar neighborhood in Gonzales, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (84.2%). There are also a number of people of Italian ancestry (3.6%), and residents who report Asian roots (2.3%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (1.6%), along with some Portuguese ancestry residents (1.3%), among others. In addition, 35.2% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Chualar neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 73.8% of households. Some people also speak English (25.7%).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Chualar neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (53.6% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (78.5%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (9.8%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
