Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.

Herald has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy.
