Sutton Profile


Overview

Sutton is a very small town located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 2,317 people and just one neighborhood, Sutton is the 28th largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Sutton is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sutton is a town of construction workers and builders, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Sutton who work in management occupations (11.76%), office and administrative support (9.11%), and personal care services (8.92%).

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

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 13.79% 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

Another notable thing is that Sutton is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Sutton’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

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

One downside of living in Sutton is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Sutton, the average commute to work is 35.45 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

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

The greatest number of Sutton residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Sutton include Irish, English, Scottish, and Scots-Irish.
