Waxhaw is a somewhat small town located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 12,750 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Waxhaw is the 90th largest community in North Carolina. Waxhaw has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.01% of the workforce.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
