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%).
A relatively large number of people in Alberta telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 22.33% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Alberta is worth considering.
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.
As is often the case in a small town, Alberta doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
