Good Hope is a very small town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 2,281 people and just one neighborhood, Good Hope is the 189th largest community in Alabama.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Good Hope is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Good Hope is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Good Hope who work in office and administrative support (11.50%), sales jobs (10.98%) and healthcare (8.81%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.99% 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
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, Good Hope is worth considering.
Good Hope 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.
