Coloma Profile


Overview

Coloma is a tiny town located in the state of California. With a population of 521 people and just one neighborhood, Coloma is the 796th largest community in California.

Housing costs in Coloma 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 where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Coloma is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Coloma is a town of managers, transportation and shipping workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Coloma who work in management occupations (29.89%), business and financial occupations (21.40%), and community and social services (12.92%).

A relatively large number of people in Coloma telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 11.81% 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

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Coloma spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 17.73 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Coloma is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Coloma, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 96.65% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

Coloma 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.

Coloma Demographics
