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: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The S Main St / U.S. Route 82
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Residents of the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 70.0% 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 98.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the S Main St / U.S. Route 82
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 96.5% of the neighborhoods
In addition, the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood is unique for having just
4.9% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 96.1% of America's neighborhoods.
Also, whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood has more single mother
households than 95.4% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the S Main St / U.S. Route 82
In the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 95.8% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (58.0%) 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
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the S Main St / U.S. Route 82 neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
21.7% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
95.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
