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

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Cordova is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-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.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.53% 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!) 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.

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 11.71 minutes getting to work every day.

Cordova 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.

Cordova Demographics

The citizens of Cordova are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 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.
