Boley is a very small town located in the state of Oklahoma. With a population of 1,194 people and just one neighborhood, Boley is the 201st largest community in Oklahoma.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Boley is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Boley is a town of service providers, construction workers and builders and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Boley who work in healthcare suport services (20.00%), food service (11.67%) and management occupations (10.83%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.86% 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, Boley is worth considering.
For a small town, Boley has a lot of people who use public transit to get to work, and those that do mostly ride the bus. This suggests that a real need for low-cost transportation in Boley exists, and local transit is helping to meet that need.
