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: 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
Holt / Gillis neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 38.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Holt / Gillis neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 60.3% have Mexican ancestry.
Holt / Gillis is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 9.35 residents per square mile, Holt / Gillis is less crowded than 97.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Holt / Gillis neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 27.6% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 97.1% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Holt / Gillis neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 11.4% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 95.4% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
