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.

The Neighbors: Languages

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 Wood Lake neighborhood in Valentine, NE, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (40.6%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (12.1%), and residents who report Irish roots (7.1%), and some of the residents are also of Danish ancestry (4.3%), along with some Scottish ancestry residents (2.9%), 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 Wood Lake neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (62.4% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (20.0%) and 11.0% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute.
