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: Diversity
Did you know that the 9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd neighborhood has more
Sub-Saharan African and African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.0% of
this neighborhood's residents have Sub-Saharan African ancestry and 5.2% have African ancestry.
9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 12.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% 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 9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.2% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the 9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
49.1% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
In addition, one of the really interesting characteristics about the
9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd neighborhood is that, according to NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive research, it is an excellent choice in which to reside for
college students. Due to its popularity among college students who
already choose to live here, its walkability, and its above average
safety from crime, the neighborhood is ideal for prospective or
already-enrolled college students. Between semesters and during
school breaks, you'll notice that the excitement here fluctuates with
the college seasons. Despite the excitement however, parents of college-age
children can rest easy knowing that this
neighborhood has an above average safety rating. For each of these
reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the
top 3.2% of college-friendly places to live in
the state of Minnesota.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the 9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (48.5%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the 9th Ave S / Clearwater Rd neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 26.6% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 95.2% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
