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: Diversity
Did you know that the Washington Blvd / 30th St neighborhood has more
Spanish and Native American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry and 2.4% have Native American ancestry.
Washington Blvd / 30th St is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.7% 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 99.0% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research identifies the Washington Blvd / 30th St
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
44.8% of its working residents employed in such fields, which is a
higher proportion than 98.3% of American neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Single parenting is hard. But you don't have to tell the
Washington Blvd / 30th St neighborhood about it; they already know. 22.2%
of this neighborhood's households are run by single mothers, which is a
higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.4%
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.
In addition, the Washington Blvd / 30th St neighborhood has a greater percentage
of children living in poverty (63.9%) than found in
96.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Children living in poverty
is one of the challenges facing America, and the world, and in this
