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: Diversity
Did you know that the Buras Town Center neighborhood has more
Brazilian and Yugoslav ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry and 1.3% have Yugoslav ancestry.
Buras Town Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Buras
Town Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 11.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 51.2%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 97.4% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, buras Town Center is ranked among the top 9.4%
of neighborhoods for first-time home buyers to consider
in the state of Louisiana according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. Homes here are
priced below median housing values in the state, yet

neighborhood is not only an accessible option but an
investment opportunity for many first-time home buyers.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
