Dauphin Island Profile


Overview

Dauphin Island is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 1,251 people and just one neighborhood, Dauphin Island is the 267th largest community in Alabama.

Dauphin Island real estate is some of the most expensive in Alabama, although Dauphin Island house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Dauphin Island is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Dauphin Island is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Dauphin Island who work in office and administrative support (13.39%), teaching (9.84%), and management occupations (8.86%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Dauphin Island has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.39% 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

Another notable thing is that Dauphin Island is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

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

One of the nice things about Dauphin Island is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

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