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: Diversity
Did you know that the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave neighborhood has more
Cuban and Haitian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 28.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have Cuban ancestry and 3.7% have Haitian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
From major sales accounts to fast-food workers, sales and service employees
are often the backbone of the local economy. In the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave
neighborhood, they truly stand out. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
identifies this neighborhood as having a higher percentage of sales and
service workers than 99.0% of all American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 97.2% of the neighborhoods
In addition, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.2%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.4%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave
What is interesting to note, is that the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(42.0%) than are found in 95.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, 96.4% of the real estate in the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Furthermore, the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 90.8% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 89.6% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Finally, the real estate in the SW 184th St / SW 112Th Ave neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 79.4% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 97.2% of American neighborhoods.
