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 Wailea / Makena neighborhood in Kihei are upper-middle income, making it an above average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 77.2% of the neighborhoods in America. With 28.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 69.7% 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 Wailea / Makena neighborhood, 44.1% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (14.5%), and 7.0% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

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 Wailea / Makena neighborhood in Kihei, HI, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (19.7%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (12.3%), and residents who report Asian roots (10.5%), and some of the residents are also of English ancestry (7.5%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (5.7%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Wailea / Makena neighborhood is English, spoken by 88.1% of households. Some people also speak Japanese (2.9%).

Getting to 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 Wailea / Makena neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (42.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
