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
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Cooper St / E Parnall Rd community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, an interesting characteristic about the Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.9%
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.
Also, the Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
1.7% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 98.8% of America's neighborhoods.
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 Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.0% 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 Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood has more
Arab and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Arab ancestry and 6.7% have African ancestry.
Cooper St / E Parnall Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.0%, the Cooper St / E Parnall Rd neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 100.0% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
