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
An interesting characteristic about the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.7%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.
In addition, the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
4.7% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.4% of America's neighborhoods.
Also, the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood stands out for having an
average per capita income lower than 95.7% of the neighborhoods
in the United States.
The E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood also has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (59.9%) than found in
95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd
neighborhood, analysis shows that 22.4% of the residents work
from home, avoiding a commute altogether. This may not seem like a large number,
but it is a higher proportion of people working from home than is found in
99.6% of the neighborhoods in the United States.
One thing NeighborhoodScout's research reveals is that the wealthier and/or
more isolated the neighborhood, the greater the proportion of residents who
choose to work from home.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood has more
African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 16.1% of
this neighborhood's residents have African ancestry.
E Nevada St / Ryan Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Arabic at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the E Nevada St / Ryan Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 33.7%, which is higher than 95.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
