Ruston East is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Ruston, Louisiana.

Ruston East real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Ruston East neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Ruston East has a 15.1% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 76.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are 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: Modes of Transportation

Our research reveals that 95.3% of commuters who live in the Ruston East neighborhood get to work each day by driving alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than 98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The real estate in this neighborhood consists of more mobile homes than 96.7% of all neighborhoods in America, with 35.8% of the occupied housing here being classified as mobile homes. So if you are looking for a mobile home, or you like the look and feel of mobile home parks, this neighborhood might have the setting you desire.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has a length of commute that is notable. Residents of the Ruston East neighborhood have the pleasure of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in America. 58.2% of the residents have a commute time from home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting means more time for other things in life.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

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 Ruston East neighborhood in Ruston are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 91.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 36.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 85.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Ruston East neighborhood, 37.4% 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 28.5% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (18.5%), and 15.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Ruston East neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.0% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Italian.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Ruston East neighborhood in Ruston, LA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Sub-Saharan African (5.2%). There are also a number of people of African ancestry (5.2%), and residents who report Irish roots (4.5%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (3.8%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (3.5%), among others.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. 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. The greatest number of commuters in Ruston East neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (58.2% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (95.3%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
