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 Santa Maria, the Midco 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 Midco neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 22.4% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 99.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the Midco (24.8%) than in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Midco neighborhood has more Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 72.7% of this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.

Midco is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 59.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 95.7% 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. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Midco neighborhood in Santa Maria are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 43.0% of the neighborhoods in America. With 38.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 81.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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.

Other residents here are employed in farming, forestry, or commercial fishing (22.4%), and 17.5% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Midco neighborhood in Santa Maria, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (72.7%).

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.
