Hot Springs is a tiny town located in the state of Montana. With a population of 551 people and just one neighborhood, Hot Springs is the 103rd largest community in Montana.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Hot Springs is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Hot Springs is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Hot Springs who work in management occupations (15.74%), sales jobs (14.35%) and office and administrative support (10.19%).
Also of interest is that Hot Springs 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: 8.80% 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 of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 17.93 minutes getting to work every day.
As is often the case in a small town, Hot Springs doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
