Lowell is a very small city located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 1,057 people and just one neighborhood, Lowell is the 170th largest community in Oregon.
Occupations and Workforce
Lowell is a blue-collar town, with 36.73% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Lowell is a city of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Lowell who work in sales jobs (10.54%), maintenance occupations (9.86%) and office and administrative support (8.84%).
Also of interest is that Lowell 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: 7.61% 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
One downside of living in Lowell is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Lowell, the average commute to work is 30.54 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small city, Lowell doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
