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: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Bloodland / Cookville
neighborhood, analysis shows that 49.5% 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
99.9% 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: Occupations
The Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.9% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 48.3% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Bloodland / Cookville
neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
39.7% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 95.6% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 84.4% of the residents have a commute time from
home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 99.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
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 Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.5% 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 Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood has more
Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 0.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry.
Bloodland / Cookville is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Mon-Khmer, which is the dominant language of Cambodia, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Bloodland / Cookville
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
12.0% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
In addition, the Bloodland / Cookville neighborhood stands out within Missouri
for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students,
is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this
makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider.
Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may
be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared
towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone,
ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and
school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an
above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the
neighborhood is rated among the top 7%
of college-friendly places to live in MO.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate

When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 66.5% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer.
