Occupations and Workforce
When you are in Norman, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 47.14% of Norman’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Norman is a town of construction workers and builders, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Norman who work in sales jobs (10.00%), healthcare (8.57%) and food service (7.14%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.57% 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, Norman is worth considering.
Norman 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.
