Adak Profile


Overview

Adak is a tiny coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 171 people and just one neighborhood, Adak is the 64th largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

Adak is a blue-collar town, with 37.61% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Adak is a city of service providers, transportation and shipping workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Adak who work in management occupations (13.76%), law enforcement and fire fighting (12.84%), and food service (11.93%).

Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Adak is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Adak’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Adak’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Adak has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Adak has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Adak than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Adak may be for you.

One of the nice things about Adak is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Residents of the city have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 7.64 minutes getting to work every day.

In Adak, a lot of people use the bus to get to work every day though Adak is a relatively small city. Those that ride the bus are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
