Ross Profile


Overview

Ross is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 2,451 people and just one neighborhood, Ross is the 606th largest community in California. Ross has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Ross home prices are not only among the most expensive in California, but Ross real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Ross is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 98.63% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Ross is a town of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Ross who work in management occupations (31.62%), sales jobs (20.69%), and art, media, and design (8.82%).

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

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 16.81% 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

In addition, Ross is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Ross is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Ross a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Ross has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Ross’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

One downside of living in Ross, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.76 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

In Ross, a lot of people use a ferryboat to get to work every day though Ross is a relatively small town. Those that ride a ferryboat are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
