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
With 8.4% of employed workers living in the
Jefferson Davis Hwy / Dale Ave neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 99.4% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
Furthermore, it used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Jefferson Davis Hwy / Dale Ave neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 5.6%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods.
In addition, more people work in manufacturing and as laborers here in the Jefferson Davis Hwy / Dale Ave
neighborhood than in 96.0% of the neighborhoods in America. Despite
the loss of manufacturing jobs across the nation, this neighborhood remains
a place where, compared to other parts of the country, you will find many
laborers and manufacturers.
