Brisbane Profile


Overview

Brisbane is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 4,851 people and just one neighborhood, Brisbane is the 530th largest community in California.

Brisbane home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but Brisbane real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Brisbane is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Brisbane is a city of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Brisbane who work in management occupations (13.29%), office and administrative support (10.31%), and healthcare (9.50%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Brisbane has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

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

A relatively large number of people in Brisbane telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.50% 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

Brisbane 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.

One downside of living in Brisbane, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.72 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

In Brisbane, a lot of people use the subway to get to work every day though Brisbane is a relatively small city. Those that ride the subway are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.

The greatest number of Brisbane residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Brisbane also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race).
