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.

Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Elizabethport neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.
Often high concentrations of single mother homes can be a strong indicator
of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
In addition, neighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 97.4%
of the adult residents in the Elizabethport neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America.

Dominican and South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 13.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 11.3% have South American ancestry.
Elizabethport is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
