Klamath is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 759 people and just one neighborhood, Klamath is the 724th largest community in California.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Klamath is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Klamath is a town of service providers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Klamath who work in management occupations (11.22%), sales jobs (9.94%) and art, media, and design (9.62%).
Of important note, Klamath is also a town of artists. Klamath has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Klamath’s character.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 13.53% 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
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Klamath has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Klamath a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Klamath 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.
As is often the case in a small town, Klamath doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
