Sanders is a tiny town located in the state of Arizona. With a population of 633 people and just one neighborhood, Sanders is the 142nd largest community in Arizona.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Sanders is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sanders is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Sanders who work in personal care services (20.78%), sales jobs (15.58%) and maintenance occupations (9.09%).
A relatively large number of people in Sanders telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 25.97% 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
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, Sanders has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Sanders a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Sanders is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Sanders isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Being a small town, Sanders does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
