Aberdeen City Center is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

Real estate in the City Center of Aberdeen, SD is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the City Center neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Aberdeen City Center has a 12.2% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 64.2% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

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 Aberdeen, the City Center neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Aberdeen City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% 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 98.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Aberdeen City Center neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that 23.8% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in 97.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

In fact, despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has 41.0% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a higher proportion than 96.6% of American neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

There is an especially high percentage of incarcerated people (1.9%) living in the Aberdeen City Center neighborhood.

In addition, the Aberdeen City Center neighborhood stands out within South Dakota for its college student friendly environment. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that this neighborhood is home to a number of college students, is relatively walkable, and above average in safety. In combination, this makes it stand out for a good place for college students to consider. Because a number of college students live here, this neighborhood may be close to a college campus and offer certain amenities nearby geared towards the student body. While it's not an environment for everyone, ambitious scholars can enjoy seasonal excitement between semesters and school breaks, and parents can rest easy knowing that the area has an above average safety rating. For each of these reasons, the neighborhood is rated among the top 7.7% of college-friendly places to live in SD.

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 Aberdeen City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 96.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.


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 City Center neighborhood in Aberdeen are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 91.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 27.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 67.9% 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 Aberdeen City Center neighborhood, 41.0% 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 29.1% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (19.3%), and 10.3% in executive, management, and professional occupations.

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.

The most common language spoken in the Aberdeen City Center neighborhood is English, spoken by 83.4% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and German.

Getting to 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.
