Alberta is a very small town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 1,243 people and just one neighborhood, Alberta is the 257th largest community in Alabama.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Alberta is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Alberta is a town of service providers, construction workers and builders and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Alberta who work in law enforcement and fire fighting (30.00%), healthcare suport services (14.55%) and office and administrative support (12.73%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 22.33% 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
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Alberta has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Alberta a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Alberta is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Alberta, the average commute to work is 34.88 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
Alberta is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
