In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Dotsero / McCoy neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.5%, which is higher than 95.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their

people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.

Dotsero / McCoy neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.3%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.
