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 Bates College / Sabattus St neighborhood in Lewiston are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 63.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 96.3% 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 Bates College / Sabattus St neighborhood, 29.8% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations.

Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (24.9%), and 17.3% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Bates College / Sabattus St neighborhood in Lewiston, ME, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as French (17.8%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (17.7%), and residents who report French Canadian roots (15.4%), and some of the residents are also of Irish ancestry (12.2%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (9.1%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Bates College / Sabattus St neighborhood is English, spoken by 80.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include French, Spanish and Arabic.

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 Bates College / Sabattus St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (65.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
