Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Harris is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Harris who work in office and administrative support (14.22%), management occupations (10.16%) and sales jobs (7.22%).
A relatively large number of people in Harris telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.37% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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
Because of many things, Harris is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Harris a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Harris has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Harris’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Residents will find that the city 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, Harris is worth considering.
