Citra is a somewhat small town located in the state of Florida. With a population of 7,394 people and just one neighborhood, Citra is the 231st largest community in Florida.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Citra is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Citra is a town of service providers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Citra who work in personal care services (12.96%), office and administrative support (12.19%) and management occupations (11.69%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.26% 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. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Citra is worth considering.
One downside of living in Citra is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Citra, the average commute to work is 30.77 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Citra doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
