Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Newcastle isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Newcastle are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Newcastle is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Newcastle who work in office and administrative support (14.87%), sales jobs (12.21%) and food service (10.09%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.58% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
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, Newcastle has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Newcastle a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
