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 Dempster St / Parkside Dr neighborhood in Park Ridge are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 87.6% of the neighborhoods in America. With 20.3% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 57.6% 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 Dempster St / Parkside Dr neighborhood, 46.7% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional 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 19.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (18.4%), and 15.8% in manufacturing and laborer 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 Dempster St / Parkside Dr neighborhood in Park Ridge, IL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Polish (23.8%). There are also a number of people of Asian ancestry (14.9%), and residents who report Italian roots (12.4%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (9.0%), along with some Greek ancestry residents (7.1%), among others. In addition, 35.3% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Dempster St / Parkside Dr neighborhood is English, spoken by 49.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Polish, Greek, Spanish and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Dempster St / Parkside Dr neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (30.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (75.7%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also take the train to get to work (9.3%) and 8.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
