Hoonah Profile


Overview

Hoonah is a tiny coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 757 people and just one neighborhood, Hoonah is the 43rd largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities, Hoonah isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Hoonah are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Hoonah is a city of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Hoonah who work in office and administrative support (14.29%), management occupations (12.77%), and sales jobs (11.55%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Hoonah has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.


Setting & Lifestyle

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, Hoonah is worth considering.

One of the nice things about Hoonah 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.

One of the benefits of Hoonah is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 10.48 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.

Hoonah Demographics

In terms of college education, the citizens of Hoonah rank slightly lower than the national average. 13.90% of adults 25 and older in Hoonah have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree, while 21.84% of adults have a 4-year degree or higher in the average American community.

The per capita income in Hoonah in 2010 was $26,050, 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 $104,200 for a family of four. However, Hoonah contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Hoonah is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Hoonah home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Hoonah residents report their race to be Native American, followed by White. Important ancestries of people in Hoonah include English, Norwegian, Irish, and Scottish.

The most common language spoken in Hoonah is English. Other important languages spoken here include Native American languages and French Creole.
