Moving Resources: Getting to Know Your Community

The community information provided starts with community characteristics, or factors that influence the specific community greatly. These factors can include nearby military facilities, residential turnover rates and closest sports teams. The community summary breaks down population growth and density, as well as household size and those households with children.

These percentages can give you a better idea of where you stand once you enter into your new community in regards to your neighbors.
