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 Warm Springs
neighborhood, analysis shows that 25.5% 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
99.7% 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: Diversity
Did you know that the Warm Springs neighborhood has more
Yugoslav and Finnish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.5% of
this neighborhood's residents have Yugoslav ancestry and 2.0% have Finnish ancestry.
Warm Springs is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Warm Springs neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 8.1%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Warm Springs neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Warm Springs neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 36.6%, which is higher than 96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or
three. But households in the Warm Springs neighborhood buck
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 36.4% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 9.9% of the people in the Warm Springs
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
