Akron Profile


Overview

Akron is a tiny town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 332 people and just one neighborhood, Akron is the 358th largest community in Alabama.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Akron, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 52.08% of Akron’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Akron is a town of production and manufacturing workers, service providers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Akron who work in healthcare suport services (11.46%), maintenance occupations (10.42%), and sales jobs (7.29%).

Setting & Lifestyle

The overall crime rate in Akron is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

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

One downside of living in Akron is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Akron, the average commute to work is 40.89 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Akron is a very car-oriented town. 100.00% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Akron is a small town , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Akron has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.

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