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
Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Laketon neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 68.8% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 97.8% of the neighborhoods
In addition, if you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Laketon neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 11.1% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of Indiana. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
In addition to being an excellent choice for families with school-aged children, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for active retirees.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
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
Laketon neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.8%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Laketon neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Laketon is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
