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: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
57.3% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 99.9% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd neighborhood has more
Jamaican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Jamaican ancestry.
Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Vietnamese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
In addition, the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (60.7%) than found in
95.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 89.0%, which is higher than 96.8% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Furthermore, the real estate in the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd 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, 72.5% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 96.2% of American neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Old Dixie Hwy / Morrow Rd 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 81.2% 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.
