Occupations and Workforce

Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dateland is a town of managers, sales and office workers and service providers.

A relatively large number of people in Dateland telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 18.18% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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, Dateland is worth considering.
One downside of living in Dateland is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Dateland, the average commute to work is 31.53 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
