Ider is a tiny town located in the state of Alabama. With a population of 716 people and just one neighborhood, Ider is the 321st largest community in Alabama.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Ider is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Ider is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Ider who work in office and administrative support (16.20%), teaching (10.34%) and food service (8.66%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.15% 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, Ider has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Ider a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Being a small town, Ider does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
