Hamer / Riverdale real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) mobile homes and single-family homes. Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of the residences in the Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999.

Hamer / Riverdale has a 15.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 75.3% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round.

Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute is an important factor for one's quality of life.

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 Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 3.9% of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration of such workers than 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood in Dillon are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 97.2% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 59.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood, 36.8% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 26.2% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (17.2%), and 15.8% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood is English, spoken by 95.1% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (3.5%).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood in Dillon, SC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as English (15.0%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (6.7%), and residents who report Native American roots (4.9%), and some of the residents are also of Mexican ancestry (4.5%), along with some German ancestry residents (3.4%), among others.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Hamer / Riverdale neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (36.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (9.8%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

Here most residents (70.6%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors to get to work (29.4%) . In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
