There are especially a lot of people living in Scotland who work in office and administrative support (15.70%), sales jobs (11.60%) and maintenance occupations (7.62%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Scotland is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Scotland’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
One downside of living in Scotland is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Scotland, the average commute to work is 30.90 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
Being a small town, Scotland does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
