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.

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 42.3% of the neighborhoods in America. With 33.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 79.6% 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.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Radium Springs neighborhood is English, spoken by 92.5% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (7.5%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Radium Springs neighborhood in Albany, GA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (3.0%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (2.9%), and residents who report English roots (2.1%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (1.4%), along with some Jamaican ancestry residents (1.2%), 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 Radium Springs neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (57.7% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (82.0%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (16.6%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
