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
One of the unique characteristics of the S Soto St / E Washington Blvd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 96.6% of the neighborhoods
The S Soto St / E Washington Blvd neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (68.5%) than found in
97.6% 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.
In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the S Soto St / E Washington Blvd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the S Soto St / E Washington Blvd neighborhood has more
Mexican and Armenian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 66.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry and 0.9% have Armenian ancestry.
S Soto St / E Washington Blvd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Japanese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
What is interesting to note, is that the S Soto St / E Washington Blvd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(44.1%) than are found in 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations

employed as sales and service workers (57.7%) 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: Real Estate
