Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Residents of the Valentine City Center neighborhood have the pleasure
of having one of the shortest commutes to work of any neighborhood in
America. 71.5% 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 98.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Valentine City Center neighborhood has more
Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry.
Valentine City Center 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: Modes of Transportation
A unique way of commuting is simply not to. And in the Valentine City Center
neighborhood, analysis shows that 11.4% 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
95.5% 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: 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 Valentine
City Center neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 3.9%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
