Notable & Unique: People
An interesting characteristic about the Brownfield City Center neighborhood
is that there are more incarcerated people living here than 99.4%
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.
In addition, the Brownfield City Center neighborhood is unique for having just
3.9% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 97.4% of America's neighborhoods.

or fishers. But the Brownfield City Center neighborhood truly stands
out among U.S. neighborhoods. According to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis,
this neighborhood has a greater proportion of farmers, foresters, or fishers
than 97.7% of all American neighborhoods. This is truly a unique
cultural characteristic of this neighborhood.

neighborhood as having one of the highest concentrations of people employed
in manufacturing or as laborers of any neighborhood in America. In fact,
despite the loss of manufacturing jobs nationally, this neighborhood has
39.7% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 95.6% of American neighborhoods.

Welsh and Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 60.1% have Mexican ancestry.
Brownfield City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.2% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
In the Brownfield City Center neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 96.0% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Brownfield City Center neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.4%, which is higher than 95.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
