Somerset Profile


Overview

Somerset is a somewhat small town located in the state of California. With a population of 6,008 people and just one neighborhood, Somerset is the 489th largest community in California.

Housing costs in Somerset 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

Unlike some towns, Somerset isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Somerset are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Somerset is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Somerset who work in office and administrative support (13.41%), sales jobs (12.48%), and business and financial occupations (11.59%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.25% 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

Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Somerset is worth considering.

One downside of living in Somerset is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Somerset, the average commute to work is 41.91 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the town, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

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

Somerset Demographics

The education level of Somerset citizens is a little higher than the average for US cities and towns: 21.62% of adults in Somerset have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Somerset in 2010 was $33,461, which is upper middle income relative to California, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $133,844 for a family of four. However, Somerset contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Somerset home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Somerset residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Somerset include English, Irish, Italian, and French .

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