Lakehead is a tiny town located in the state of California. With a population of 465 people and just one neighborhood, Lakehead is the 744th largest community in California.
Occupations and Workforce
Lakehead is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.96% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Lakehead is a town of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Lakehead who work in sales jobs (27.78%), management occupations (25.00%) and office and administrative support (12.96%).
A relatively large number of people in Lakehead telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 19.80% 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
Another notable thing is that Lakehead is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Lakehead’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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, Lakehead is worth considering.
One downside of living in Lakehead, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.46 minutes every day commuting to work.
Lakehead 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.
