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
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Cherry Hill neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 20.3% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
99.0% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 3.1% of employed workers living in the
Cherry Hill neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 98.2% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.

Sub-Saharan African and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 9.3% of

Cherry Hill is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 7.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
