Northfield is a medium-sized city located in the state of Minnesota. With a population of 20,213 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Northfield is the 55th largest community in Minnesota.
Northfield is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 86.84% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Northfield is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Northfield who work in office and administrative support (16.74%), teaching (14.25%) and personal care services (8.14%).
Of important note, Northfield is also a city of artists. Northfield has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Northfield’s character.
Also of interest is that Northfield has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 25.79% 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.
Northfield is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Northfield have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Northfield’s economy is one such example of this.
Northfield, while not large, also appears to be attractive to some younger, educated professionals, who help shape the character of the city.
The education level of Northfield ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Northfield, 48.96% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.
