State St / E Lincoln Hwy is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Chicago Heights, Illinois.

State St / E Lincoln Hwy real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in State St / E Lincoln Hwy. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 32.1%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied. But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

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 State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America. The State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (88.8%) than found in 99.8% 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.

In addition, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood has more single mother households than 99.7% 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.

Also, the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood is unique for having just 1.6% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree. This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.8% of America's neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the State St / E Lincoln Hwy 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 50.0% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 99.4% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 13.9% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 96.1% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood buck this trend. 25.6% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Despite all of the residential real estate here in the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.1%, which is higher than 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood in Chicago Heights are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 96.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 88.8% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 99.8% 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 State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood, 50.0% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 23.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (18.9%), and 8.2% in executive, management, and professional 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 State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood in Chicago Heights, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (0.7%).

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the State St / E Lincoln Hwy neighborhood is English, spoken by 98.9% of households.

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.

In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (13.9%) and 5.5% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute.
