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 LeDroit Park / Howard U neighborhood in Washington are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 83.8% of the neighborhoods in America. With 24.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 68.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the LeDroit Park / Howard U neighborhood, 52.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 27.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (16.6%), and 11.9% in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the LeDroit Park / Howard U neighborhood is English, spoken by 90.9% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (4.0%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the LeDroit Park / Howard U neighborhood in Washington, DC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (18.9%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (6.2%), and residents who report Irish roots (5.9%), and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (3.4%), along with some African ancestry residents (3.1%), among others.

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 LeDroit Park / Howard U neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (38.6% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.

In addition, quite a number also take the train to get to work (23.1%) and 16.2% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute.
