Maricopa Profile

Maricopa is a blue-collar town, with 45.66% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.21% 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.
