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.

of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.

higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2%
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.
