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: Occupations
There are more people living in the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood
employed as sales and service workers (39.2%) than almost any neighborhood
in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts,
sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national
employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this
neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people
living here who work in such occupations.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research shows that more people carpool to work here in the
Midpark Rd / Maham Rd (33.1%) than in 99.7% of the
neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: People
The Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood is unique for having just
0.0% of adults here having earned a bachelor's degree.
This is a lower rate of college graduates than NeighborhoodScout found
in 99.5% of America's neighborhoods.
In addition, of note, 75.4% 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.
Also, single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood about it; they already know. 19.9%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.1%
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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood has more
Mexican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 73.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Mexican ancestry.
Midpark Rd / Maham Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 90.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Spanish at home. This is a higher percentage than 99.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other
neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live
near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities
of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that
neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting
things about the rootedness of people in the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd
In the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 97.6% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
What is also interesting to note, is that the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd
neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country
(49.3%) than are found in 97.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
The Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 33,629 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 97.5% of the nation's neighborhoods.
In addition, the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 97.0% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Furthermore, 100.0% of the real estate in the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood is occupied by renters, which is nearly the highest rate of renter occupancy of any neighborhood in America.
Also of note, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Midpark Rd / Maham Rd neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 85.2% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 98.0% of all neighborhoods in America.
