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 Washington Rd / Desert Dr neighborhood in East Point are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 86.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 29.6% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 77.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Washington Rd / Desert Dr neighborhood, 39.5% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 25.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (20.0%), and 15.1% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Washington Rd / Desert Dr neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.4% of households. Some people also speak African languages (2.2%).

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 Washington Rd / Desert Dr neighborhood in East Point, GA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (17.7%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (11.7%), and residents who report Jamaican roots (5.7%), and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (1.2%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (1.1%), 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 Washington Rd / Desert Dr neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (34.7% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.
