Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: People

One of the unique characteristics of the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America. Also of note, 100.0% of the children in this area live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for the depth of the problem manifested here.

In addition, neighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled in college than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With 92.0% of the population here attending college, this is very much a college-focused neighborhood.

Also, the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood stands out within Illinois for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider. Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 6.4% of college-friendly places to live in IL.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 99.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

100.0% of the real estate in the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

In addition, the real estate in the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St 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, 93.6% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 99.0% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 49,162 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.6% of the nation's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

The U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's analysis.

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 U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood in Champaign are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 100.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.9% 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.

In the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood, 36.6% 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 executive, management, and professional occupations, with 35.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (23.9%), and 3.5% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood in Champaign, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (23.4%). There are also a number of people of Asian ancestry (16.7%), and residents who report Irish roots (15.0%), and some of the residents are also of Polish ancestry (10.5%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (7.5%), among others. In addition, 10.5% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood is English, spoken by 79.6% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Chinese, Spanish and Korean.

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 U of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign / S 3rd St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (72.3% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (64.8%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (22.4%) and 8.7% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
