Redway Profile


Overview

Redway is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 1,225 people and just one neighborhood, Redway is the 690th largest community in California.

Housing costs in Redway 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

Redway is a blue-collar town, with 37.11% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Redway is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Redway who work in office and administrative support (27.09%), art, media, and design (11.69%), and food service (11.13%).

Of important note, Redway is also a town of artists. Redway has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Redway’s character.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 21.52% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 Redway is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially 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, Redway has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Redway a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One of the nice things about Redway is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 16.97 minutes getting to work every day.

Redway, even though it is a small town, has many people who use public transportation every day to get to and from work. This is a great benefit for people in the, town who have a need for low-cost transportation.

Redway Demographics

The citizens of Redway are slightly less educated than the national average of 21.84% for the average city or town: 14.80% of adults in Redway have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree

The per capita income in Redway in 2010 was $18,078, which is lower middle income relative to California and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $72,312 for a family of four. However, Redway contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Redway is a somewhat ethnically-diverse town. The people who call Redway home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Redway residents report their race to be White. Redway also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 14.16% of the town’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Redway include Irish, English, Scottish, and Dutch.

The most common language spoken in Redway is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and African languages.
