The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Dogwood St SW / Lincoln Blvd SW neighborhood in Lakewood are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 47.3% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 11.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 56.8% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Dogwood St SW / Lincoln Blvd SW neighborhood, 38.4% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 37.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in government jobs, whether they are in local, state, or federal positions (34.8%), and 29.1% in the military.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Dogwood St SW / Lincoln Blvd SW neighborhood is English, spoken by 79.2% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, Italian and Tagalog (the first language of the Philippine region).

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly, why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

In the Dogwood St SW / Lincoln Blvd SW neighborhood in Lakewood, WA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Mexican (15.3%). There are also a number of people of German ancestry (11.7%), and residents who report Asian roots (6.1%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (5.3%), along with some Irish ancestry residents (5.0%), among others.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike.
