The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Roseville neighborhood has more
Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 15.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Dominican ancestry and 23.2% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Roseville is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak African languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
Whether by choice, divorce, or unplanned pregnancy, single moms may have
the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the Roseville neighborhood has more single mother
households than 97.7% 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, the Roseville neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (61.5%) than found in
95.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Roseville neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 30,739 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.2% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Roseville neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 50.9% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 98.1% of America's neighborhoods.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Roseville neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 34.9%, which is higher than 96.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Roseville neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
28.1% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
More people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Roseville
neighborhood than in 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research revealed that more commuters here take the bus to work
(17.2% ride the bus) than 95.9% of all American
neighborhoods. If you like the idea of leaving your car and home and
hopping the bus to work, this might be a good neighborhood for you to
