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.

The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Kenilworth neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 19.7% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People
Of note, 68.5% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Kenilworth neighborhood has more single mother
households than 96.9% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
