Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Duluth, the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: People

One of the most interesting things about the Duluth City Center neighborhood is that it has a greater concentration of residents who live alone than most all neighborhoods in America. With 74.1% of the households here made up of people living alone, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Duluth City Center neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of residents here is lower than that found in 99.9% of the neighborhoods in America. The Duluth City Center neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (71.4%) than found in 98.8% 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: Real Estate

The Duluth City Center neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 98.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

In addition, the real estate in the Duluth City Center neighborhood really stands out in the way it looks for a unique reason: this neighborhood has a higher proportion of apartment complexes or high-rise apartments than nearly every neighborhood in the country. Most neighborhoods are a mixture of real estate and housing types, but here it is almost entirely dominated by big apartment buildings and complexes. In fact, 93.2% of the real estate here is classified as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments, which is more than is found in 98.9% of American neighborhoods.

Furthermore, 96.6% of the real estate in the Duluth City Center neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

More people in Duluth City Center choose to walk to work each day (34.1%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood could be a good choice.

Also, more people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the Duluth City Center neighborhood buck this trend. 49.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Duluth City Center neighborhood has more Swedish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.0% of this neighborhood's residents have Swedish ancestry and 8.2% have Native American ancestry.

Duluth City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% 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 99.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods, but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the transience of its populace. In the Duluth City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 97.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.


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 City Center neighborhood in Duluth are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 71.4% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 98.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Duluth City Center neighborhood, 35.9% 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 31.7% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (17.0%), and 14.5% in manufacturing and laborer 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 Duluth City Center neighborhood is English, spoken by 89.6% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Polish, African languages and Native American languages.

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 City Center neighborhood in Duluth, MN, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (22.4%). There are also a number of people of Norwegian ancestry (14.2%), and residents who report Irish roots (12.1%), and some of the residents are also of Swedish ancestry (10.0%), along with some Native American ancestry residents (8.2%), among others.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Duluth City Center neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (52.1% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (36.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (34.1%) and 23.6% of residents also ride the bus for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
