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 Everett Ave / Carter St neighborhood in Chelsea are middle-income, making it a moderate income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 49.1% of the neighborhoods in America. With 30.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 77.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Everett Ave / Carter St neighborhood, 40.2% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 25.9% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (25.4%), and 6.4% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The most common language spoken in the Everett Ave / Carter St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 56.2% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English, African languages and Portuguese.

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 Everett Ave / Carter St neighborhood in Chelsea, MA, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (17.9%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (7.1%), and residents who report South American roots (5.3%), and some of the residents are also of Sub-Saharan African ancestry (4.0%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (3.7%), among others. In addition, 44.8% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Everett Ave / Carter St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (30.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans. However, there is also a significant group of residents (13.7%) who commute over an hour in each direction.

In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (28.7%) and 14.7% of residents also carpool with coworkers, friends, or neighbors for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
