Newcastle Profile


Overview

Newcastle is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 1,321 people and just one neighborhood, Newcastle is the 719th largest community in California.

Housing costs in Newcastle are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.

Occupations and Workforce

Newcastle is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Newcastle is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Newcastle who work in office and administrative support (11.65%), sales jobs (9.71%), and business and financial occupations (7.96%).

A relatively large number of people in Newcastle telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.24% 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

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Newcastle has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Newcastle has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Newcastle than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Newcastle may be for you.

As is often the case in a small town, Newcastle doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Newcastle Demographics

In terms of college education, Newcastle is somewhat better educated than the 21.84% who have a 4-year degree or higher in the typical US community: 26.17% of adults 25 and older in the town have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Newcastle in 2018 was $46,544, which is upper middle income relative to California, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $186,176 for a family of four. However, Newcastle contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Newcastle is a very ethnically-diverse town. The people who call Newcastle home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Newcastle residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Newcastle also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race).
