Palmer is a somewhat small city located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 6,196 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Palmer is the tenth largest community in Alaska.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Palmer is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Palmer is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Palmer who work in office and administrative support (13.96%), sales jobs (8.52%) and management occupations (7.63%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.38% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
