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 Valley Home / East Oakdale neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 2.2% have Swiss ancestry.
Valley Home / East Oakdale is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
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
Valley Home / East Oakdale neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 6.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less

on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
8.6% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.8%
of all neighborhoods in America.
