There are especially a lot of people living in Scotland who work in office and administrative support (15.97%), sales jobs (12.08%) and management occupations (8.19%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Because of many things, Scotland is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Scotland really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Scotland perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
One downside of living in Scotland, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.70 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small town, Scotland doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
