Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

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: Real Estate

If you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Carpenter neighborhood. A whopping 76.1% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Carpenter neighborhood has more Scots-Irish and Welsh ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 4.9% of this neighborhood's residents have Scots-Irish ancestry and 2.5% have Welsh ancestry.

Carpenter is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Hindi, which is the official language of India at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: People

Astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here than 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the Carpenter neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if you are single, you might not find many other singles here.

In addition, do you like to read, write, and learn? Are you curious about the world? If so, this neighborhood may be a good fit for you. NeighborhoodScout's research revealed that a full 74.5% of the adults living in the Carpenter neighborhood have earned at least a bachelor's degree. This is a higher rate than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. In this way, this neighborhood truly stands out.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Executives, managers and professionals make up 70.8% of the workforce in the Carpenter neighborhood which, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such high-level people than is found in 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Carpenter neighborhood, analysis shows that 13.6% 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 97.6% 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.


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 Carpenter neighborhood in Cary are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 92.5% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 4.1% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 80.2% of America'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 Carpenter neighborhood, 70.8% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 19.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (7.1%), and 3.1% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

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 (16.9%), and residents who report English roots (14.9%), and some of the residents are also of German ancestry (11.5%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (9.1%), among others. In addition, 16.7% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Other important languages spoken here include South Asian languages, Chinese and Hindi (which is the official language of India).

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 Carpenter neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (53.7% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (85.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (11.5%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
