When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
One of the unique characteristics of the N Hampton Rd / Singleton Blvd
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 99.0% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 70.4% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the N Hampton Rd / Singleton Blvd neighborhood has more single mother
households than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

of family and social issues such as poverty, high rates of school dropouts,
crime, and other societal problems.
