Landers is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 3,910 people and just one neighborhood, Landers is the 548th largest community in California.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Landers isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Landers are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Landers is a town of professionals, service providers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Landers who work in sales jobs (11.06%), teaching (10.70%) and management occupations (10.53%).
Also of interest is that Landers has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
A relatively large number of people in Landers telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.28% 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 Landers 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, Landers’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
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, Landers has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Landers a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
In Landers, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 36.03 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Landers doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
