Anderson is a tiny city located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 265 people and just one neighborhood, Anderson is the 60th largest community in Alaska.
Occupations and Workforce
24.00% of the workforce is employed in the armed forces, making the military a huge focus of life in Anderson. Even though it is a military town, the civilian sector still plays an important role in the local economy. The Public Service and Construction industries respectively employ 28.30% and 25.47% of the civilian workforce.
Of important note, Anderson is also a city of artists. Anderson has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Anderson’s character.
Also of interest is that Anderson has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 22.67% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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
Overall, Anderson’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
Residents will find that the city 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, Anderson is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Anderson is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 15.00 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Anderson is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
