Landers is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 2,801 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Landers is the 620th largest community in California.

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Landers is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Landers is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Landers who work in sales jobs (17.85%), office and administrative support (11.11%), and healthcare (8.73%).

Of important note, Landers is also a town of artists. Landers has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Landers’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.23% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.

Another notable thing is that Landers is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

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, Landers is worth considering.
