Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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 get around.

That is more cars per household than in 99.4% of the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Most neighborhoods have a mixture of ages of homes in them, from new to old, but this neighborhood stands out due to its concentration of residential real estate built in one time frame: from 1940 through 1969, generally considered older, well-established homes. This was a busy time in America for home construction. After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families. This housing era generally coincides with the 'Baby Boom' generation (1945 - 1964), and many baby boomers grew up in homes built in this era. But what is so interesting about the Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood, is that an incredible 87.2% of the homes here were built in this era.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood in Whittier are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 74.8% of the neighborhoods in America. With 18.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 54.1% 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.

In the Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood, 30.2% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (25.3%), and 16.4% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

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.

In the Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood in Whittier, CA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (63.9%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (5.5%), and residents who report South American roots (3.8%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (3.4%), along with some Asian ancestry residents (1.9%), among others.

The most common language spoken in the Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 67.7% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Native American languages.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Leland Ave / Utica St neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (28.5% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.
