Of important note, Aspen is also a city of artists. Aspen has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Aspen’s character.
A relatively large number of people in Aspen telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.86% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
