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: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Crockett / Elamton neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
22.2% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Crockett / Elamton neighborhood has more
Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Swiss ancestry.
Crockett / Elamton is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Crockett / Elamton neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 15.1% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Crockett / Elamton
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
40.4% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 96.1% of American neighborhoods.
