Valley Springs is a very small town located in the state of California. With a population of 3,479 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Valley Springs is the 555th largest community in California.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Valley Springs is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Valley Springs is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Valley Springs who work in office and administrative support (16.89%), sales jobs (10.47%) and management occupations (6.94%).
Also of interest is that Valley Springs has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.43% 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.
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, Valley Springs has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Valley Springs a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
