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
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Gainesville City Center
neighborhood than in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Furthermore, 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 Gainesville
City Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Gainesville City Center neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
36.7% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
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 Gainesville City Center
What is interesting to note, is that the Gainesville City Center
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(51.0%) than are found in 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Gainesville City Center neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 69.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Gainesville City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 84.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Gainesville City Center neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
34.9% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
97.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The Gainesville City Center neighborhood is unique for having just
5.2% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 95.8% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, the Gainesville City Center neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 95.5% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
