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
In a nation where 1 out of every 4 children lives in poverty, the
Simpsonville neighborhood stands out as being ranked among

Also, the Simpsonville neighborhood is considered a solid choice
for executive lifestyles. NeighborhoodScout's analysis ranks it as
better than 91.2% of Maryland neighborhoods

neighborhood is also a very good choice for urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 2.3% of employed workers living in the
Simpsonville neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military

shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, the Simpsonville neighborhood has a higher proportion of
its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
96.9% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 66.7%

the character of this neighborhood, and to a large degree defines what
this neighborhood is about.
In addition, 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 Simpsonville neighborhood in particular stands out

neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than

this neighborhood's residents have Iranian ancestry and 1.1% have Haitian ancestry.
Simpsonville is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Persian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Simpsonville stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 82.4% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
