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: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much
and how often people move not only can create diverse and worldly neighborhoods,
but simultaneously it can produce a loss of intimacy with one's surroundings
and a lack of connectedness to one's neighbors. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive
research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
In the Deer Park neighborhood, a greater proportion of
the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is
found in 99.1% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood,
more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Deer Park neighborhood has more
Canadian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have Canadian ancestry.
Deer Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 2.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak French at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
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 Deer Park neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 15.2% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Furthermore, with 1.7% of employed workers living in the
Deer Park neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 96.7% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Our research reveals that 94.2% of commuters who live in the
Deer Park neighborhood get to work each day by driving
alone in their automobiles, which is a higher proportion than
96.6% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
The types of households in a neighborhood can tell a lot about the character
and lifestyle of those living here. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis
reveals that this neighborhood, above nearly every neighborhood in America,
has a greater percentage of its residents living alone: 47.9%. This
is a higher percent living alone than we found in 96.0% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. Often residents who live alone are new arrivals
to an area who are single, and often senior citizens who have lost a spouse.
In addition, an extraordinary 11.8% of the residents of the
Deer Park neighborhood are currently enrolled in college. This is
such a large part of life in this neighborhood that the neighborhood changes
a great deal with the change of semesters and is far quieter during
the summer when many students are away.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, renter-occupied real estate is dominant in the Deer Park neighborhood. The percentage of rental real estate here, according to exclusive NeighborhoodScout analysis, is 87.1%, which is higher than 96.3% of the neighborhoods in America. If you were to buy and live in the property you bought here, you would be almost alone in doing so.
