Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Copperopolis is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Copperopolis is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Copperopolis who work in office and administrative support (20.95%), law enforcement and fire fighting (7.82%) and food service (7.26%).
Also of interest is that Copperopolis has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Of important note, Copperopolis is also a town of artists. Copperopolis has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Copperopolis’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.22% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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, Copperopolis is worth considering.
One downside of living in Copperopolis, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 38.04 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small town, Copperopolis doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
