Creede Profile


Overview

Creede is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 294 people and just one neighborhood, Creede is the 213th largest community in Colorado. Creede has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Housing costs in Creede 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.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Creede isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Creede are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Creede is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Creede who work in management occupations (24.04%), sales jobs (14.42%), and teaching (9.62%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Creede has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

Of important note, Creede is also a town of artists. Creede has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Creede’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Creede telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.50% 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. 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

Another notable thing is that Creede is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Creede’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Creede 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, Creede really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Creede 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.

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, Creede is worth considering.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Creede spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 13.93 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Creede Demographics

The education level of Creede ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Creede, 40.00% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.

The per capita income in Creede in 2010 was $26,348, which is middle income relative to Colorado, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $105,392 for a family of four. However, Creede contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

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