The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Bethesda / Bilboa neighborhood in Durham are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 40.6% of the neighborhoods in America. With 14.1% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 52.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Bethesda / Bilboa neighborhood, 46.4% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations, with 19.9% of the residents employed.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Bethesda / Bilboa neighborhood is English, spoken by 87.4% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (10.6%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Bethesda / Bilboa neighborhood in Durham, NC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Irish (9.7%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (8.9%), and residents who report German roots (6.5%), and some of the residents are also of Puerto Rican ancestry (5.6%), along with some Scots-Irish ancestry residents (3.4%), among others.

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 Bethesda / Bilboa neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (54.7% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (95.2%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
