Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the South Sumter neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

In addition, most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods dominated by new construction that is not yet occupied.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Sumter, the South Sumter neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

South Sumter is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.3% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

The South Sumter neighborhood also has a greater percentage of children living in poverty (60.0%) than found in 95.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this neighborhood in particular, the problem can be considered acute.

But you don't have to tell the South Sumter neighborhood about it; they already know. 22.4% of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.5% of American neighborhoods. Further NeighborhoodScout research showed strong statistical correlations among high rates of children living in single parent households, and neighborhood crime, particularly violent crime, neighborhood poverty, and, importantly, the percentage of low weight births and rates of infant mortality.

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 South Sumter neighborhood in Sumter are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 97.9% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 60.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 95.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

What we choose to do for a living reflects who we are. Each neighborhood has a different mix of occupations represented, and together these tell you about the neighborhood and help you understand if this neighborhood may fit your lifestyle.

Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (18.2%), and 18.0% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the South Sumter neighborhood in Sumter, SC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Jamaican (14.4%). There are also a number of people of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (11.5%), and residents who report African roots (11.5%), and some of the residents are also of Asian ancestry (2.5%).

The most common language spoken in the South Sumter neighborhood is English, spoken by 97.1% of households. Other important languages spoken here include South Asian languages and Gujarati (native to the Indian state of Gujarat).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in South Sumter neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (59.8% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
