Cordova Profile


Overview

Cordova 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 2,196 people and just one neighborhood, Cordova is the 25th largest community in Alaska.

Cordova real estate is some of the most expensive in Alaska, although Cordova house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Cordova is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Cordova is a city of professionals, managers, and farmers, fishers, or foresters. There are especially a lot of people living in Cordova who work in management occupations (23.06%), farm management occupations (17.31%), and office and administrative support (10.21%).

Of important note, Cordova is also a city of artists. Cordova has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Cordova’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Cordova telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 14.53% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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!) Cordova 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. Cordova has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Cordova than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Cordova may be for you.

One of the nice things about Cordova 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.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Cordova spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 11.71 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.

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

Cordova Demographics

The population of Cordova is very well educated relative to most cities and towns in the nation, where the average community has 21.84% of its adult population holding a 4-year degree or higher: 35.70% of adults in Cordova have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.

The per capita income in Cordova in 2010 was $45,476, which is wealthy relative to Alaska and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $181,904 for a family of four.

Cordova is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Cordova home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Cordova residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Cordova include German, Irish, Swedish, and Danish.

The most common language spoken in Cordova is English. Other important languages spoken here include Tagalog and Spanish.
