Wilton is a somewhat small town located in the state of California. With a population of 5,574 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Wilton is the 499th largest community in California.
Housing costs in Wilton 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.
Wilton is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.10% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Wilton is a town of professionals, managers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wilton who work in office and administrative support (14.67%), management occupations (13.22%) and business and financial occupations (9.26%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 11.09% 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.
Because of many things, Wilton is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Wilton really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Wilton perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
