Bailey is a somewhat small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 9,315 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Bailey is the 50th largest community in Colorado.
Housing costs in Bailey 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 Colorado.
Bailey is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Bailey is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Bailey who work in office and administrative support (13.27%), management occupations (11.66%) and sales jobs (8.12%).
Also of interest is that Bailey has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 11.85% 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.
Overall, Bailey’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
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, Bailey is worth considering.
