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: Diversity
Did you know that the Clayton neighborhood has more
Czechoslovakian and Portuguese ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Czechoslovakian ancestry and 3.2% have Portuguese ancestry.
Clayton is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.7% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Clayton neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 17.7% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
If your dream is to be able to ride your bike to work each day, look no
further than this unique neighborhood. With 4.0% of residents in
the Clayton neighborhood commuting on a bicycle to and
from work daily, this neighborhood has more bicycle commuters than
96.4% of all neighborhoods in the U.S., according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Clayton neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 10.5% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of California. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Clayton neighborhood's real estate landscape than 98.0% of the neighborhoods in America. When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 66.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.
