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: People
The Lennox neighborhood is unique for having just
3.1% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 98.0% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, of note, 65.6% 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.
Also, with more than 2.0% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Lennox is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Lennox neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 65.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Lennox is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 88.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Lennox neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (55.6%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
What is interesting to note, is that the Lennox
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(45.0%) than are found in 96.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the Lennox neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 95.8% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 22,864 people per square mile living here.
