Tok Profile


Overview

Tok is a very small town located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 1,241 people and just one neighborhood, Tok is the 33rd largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Tok isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Tok are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Tok is a town of service providers, construction workers and builders, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Tok who work in office and administrative support (11.52%), management occupations (10.30%), and teaching (8.73%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.58% 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

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

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Tok spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 14.22 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Being a small town, Tok does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Tok Demographics

In terms of college education, the citizens of Tok rank slightly lower than the national average. 13.20% of adults 25 and older in Tok 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 Tok in 2010 was $24,883, which is lower middle income relative to Alaska, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $99,532 for a family of four. However, Tok contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

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