Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Merced, the Martin Luther King Jr Way / W 13Th St neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

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 Martin Luther King Jr Way / W 13Th St neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 40.8% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Martin Luther King Jr Way / W 13Th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 70.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

89.9% of the real estate in the Martin Luther King Jr Way / W 13Th St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood 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 Martin Luther King Jr Way / W 13Th St neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (43.3%) than are found in 95.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

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.
