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 Oak Ridge / Pocahontas neighborhood has more
Greek and German ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 48.6% have German ancestry.
Oak Ridge / Pocahontas is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 96.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Oak Ridge / Pocahontas neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 27.3% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 96.8% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
With more than 2.2% of residents living with a same sex partner,
Oak Ridge / Pocahontas is truly a neighborhood that stands out from the rest in
this regard. In fact, exclusive analysis by NeighborhoodScout reveals that
this neighborhood has a greater concentration of same sex couples than
95.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, if you're looking for a great spot to raise a family, then look no
further than the Oak Ridge / Pocahontas neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's
analysis found that the combination of good quality public schools,
above-average safety from crime, and a high rate of home ownership in
predominantly single-family homes, help make this neighborhood
among the top 11.3% of family-friendly neighborhoods
across the state of Missouri. In addition, there are a high proportion
of other families with school-aged children living here, making it easy
for parents and their children to socialize and develop a sense of community
support. In addition, families here highly value education, as is reflected
by the strength of the local schools, in part due to the educational
attainment of the parents here, who vote in support of the public schools.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 34.05 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 92.1% of America.
