A relatively large number of people in Rancho Mirage telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 15.27% 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.
Another notable thing is that Rancho Mirage is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’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, Rancho Mirage’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
The city 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, Rancho Mirage has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Rancho Mirage a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
