Albion Profile


Overview

Albion is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 168 people and just one neighborhood, Albion is the 758th largest community in California. Albion has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Albion, where the median household income is $12,209.00.

Housing costs in Albion are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Albion isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Albion are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Albion is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and farmers, fishers, or foresters. There are especially a lot of people living in Albion who work in sales jobs (23.89%), community and social services (14.16%), and farm management occupations (12.39%).

In addition, many people in Albion have jobs in agriculture, more so than in most other communities in America. As a result, you will see quite a number of farms around town.

Also of interest is that Albion has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 15.93% 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

Albion is a place where college students are a big part of the character and culture of the town. Small towns have often struggled with declining populations over the past few decades, but the presence of such a large college student population has helped Albion to fight this trend. Not only does the college population add spending and jobs to local economy, but it also contributes a very tangible, youthful energy to the town.

Albion’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

Albion is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Albion 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.

Albion Demographics

The percentage of people in Albion who are college-educated is somewhat higher than the average US community of 21.84%: 27.41% of adults in Albion have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Albion in 2010 was $23,881, which is middle income relative to California and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $95,524 for a family of four. However, Albion contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Albion also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 45.81% of its population below the federal poverty line.
