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.

Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 0.62 residents per square mile, Jordan Valley is less crowded than 99.6% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Jordan Valley neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.6%
of neighborhoods in the U.S. The United States has the highest rate of
incarceration in the world, currently with 1 out of every 100 adults in the
country are incarcerated as a punishment for crimes committed. The extremely
high incarceration rate of this neighborhood could mean that a prison, juvenile
detention facility or other correctional facility occupies a large proportion
of the neighborhood, or contains a large portion of the neighborhood's population.

Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Jordan Valley neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 9.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.7% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Jordan Valley neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 15.7% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 98.6% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Also, more people in Jordan Valley choose to walk to work each day
