Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Bereah neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.4%
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.
In addition, the Bereah neighborhood is unique for having just
1.9% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 98.7% of America's neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Bereah neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 12.4%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Bereah neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.9% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Bereah neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 12.4% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 96.7% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
