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.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
There are more people living in the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (45.3%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood has more
Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Brazilian ancestry.
Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood about it; they already know. 20.9%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.8%
of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong
statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single
parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime,
neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births
and rates of infant mortality.

Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr (20.9%) than in 95.6% of the

Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 98.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Furthermore, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 90.1%, which is higher than 97.1% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Smoke Ranch Rd / Rock Springs Dr neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 77.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 96.9% of all neighborhoods in America.
