Alberta is a very small town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 1,240 people and just one neighborhood, Alberta is the 257th largest community in Alabama.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Alberta isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Alberta are a mix 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%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 22.33% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.
In Alberta, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 34.88 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
Being a small town, Alberta does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
