Akutan Profile


Overview

Akutan is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 1,040 people and just one neighborhood, Akutan is the 37th largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Akutan, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 86.93% of Akutan’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Akutan is a city of production and manufacturing workers, transportation and shipping workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Akutan who work in maintenance occupations (3.42%), office and administrative support (2.59%), and farm management occupations (2.12%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.02% 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

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!) Akutan 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. Akutan has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Akutan than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Akutan may be for you.

Akutan is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

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 7.56 minutes getting to work every day.

As is often the case in a small city, Akutan doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Akutan Demographics

In Akutan, just 10.32% of people have at least a bachelor's degree, which is quite a bit lower than the national average for cities and towns of 21.84%.

The per capita income in Akutan in 2010 was $26,513, which is lower middle income relative to Alaska, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $106,052 for a family of four.

Akutan is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Akutan home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Akutan residents report their race to be Asian, followed by White. Akutan also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race).
