The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character

reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 66.8%. This

to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.

in this neighborhood there is a dramatic difference. NeighborhoodScout's

earned a Masters degree, medical degree, Ph.D. or law degree. This is a
higher rate of people with a graduate degree than is found in
96.4% of U.S. neighborhoods, where the average American
