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: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.9%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
Also, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.3%
of the adult residents in the Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood has more
African and Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry and 8.1% have Jamaican ancestry.
Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.1% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.
In the Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 98.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.0% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Bilton Rd / Shaker Rd neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
