Ploesti Dr / J St has a 13.6% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 70.4% of American neighborhoods).

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 Ploesti Dr / J St neighborhood in Biloxi are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 55.6% of the neighborhoods in America. With 25.9% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 66.6% 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 Ploesti Dr / J St neighborhood, 61.3% of the working population is employed in the military. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 50.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (35.5%), and 25.0% in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (16.1%), and residents who report English roots (6.4%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (6.0%), along with some Mexican ancestry residents (5.9%), among others.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Ploesti Dr / J St neighborhood is English, spoken by 93.0% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (4.2%).

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 Ploesti Dr / J St neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (61.6% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

Here most residents (80.3%) hop out the door and walk to work to get to work. In addition, quite a number also drive alone in a private automobile to get to work (16.0%) . This is a special neighborhood for the number of people who walk to work. Combining exercise, low cost, and reduced pollution, plus the chance to see your neighbors, walking to work is fairly uncommon in America but likely to increase as people try to reduce their dependence on automobiles, and this neighborhood offers that opportunity today.
