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
The SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than
99.7% of other U.S. neighborhoods. If you come here, you
will notice military people active in their jobs, going to and from work,
and in plain clothes out and about the neighborhood.
Furthermore, the government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 18.0% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
98.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: People
Of particular note, 12.3% of the people in the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St
neighborhood currently reside in a correction facility, held due to
punishment for a crime.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood has more
Native American and Arab ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Native American ancestry and 2.9% have Arab ancestry.
SW F Ave / SW 11Th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 86.6%, which is higher than 96.2% 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.
Furthermore, the SW F Ave / SW 11Th St neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
