A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

In Oakland, the current vacancy rate is 1.5%, which is a lower rate of vacancies than 94.2% of all neighborhoods in the U.S. This means that the housing supply in Oakland is very tight compared to the demand for property here.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Oakland neighborhood in Sumter are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 77.6% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 20.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 61.8% 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 Oakland neighborhood, 33.1% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 30.8% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (21.5%), and 20.0% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The most common language spoken in the Oakland neighborhood is English, spoken by 93.3% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Polish.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Oakland neighborhood in Sumter, SC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (17.5%). There are also a number of people of English ancestry (8.6%), and residents who report Irish roots (6.8%), and some of the residents are also of Scottish ancestry (6.4%), along with some Polish ancestry residents (4.9%), 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 Oakland neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (62.4% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.

In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
