The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
August (38.0%) than in 99.9% 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
August neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 14.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, more people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the August
neighborhood than in 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the August neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 74.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
August is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 70.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 97.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the August neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 31.7% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.5% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
The August neighborhood is unique for having just
3.8% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.4% of America's neighborhoods.
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 August
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.0%) than are found in 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
