Goshen Profile


Overview

Goshen is a tiny town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 257 people and just one neighborhood, Goshen is the 375th largest community in Alabama.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Goshen, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 46.43% of Goshen’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Goshen is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Goshen who work in office and administrative support (12.50%), sales jobs (10.71%), and farm management occupations (9.82%).

Another important characteristic of Goshen is that a lot of people work in agricultural jobs, especially compared to most other communities in America, and there are quite a number of farms in town.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 16.07% 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

Overall, Goshen’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.

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

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