Crestone Profile


Overview

Crestone is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 139 people and just one neighborhood, Crestone is the 224th largest community in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Crestone isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Crestone are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Crestone is a town of construction workers and builders, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Crestone who work in sales jobs (22.86%), personal care services (20.00%), and computer science and math (11.43%).

Also of interest is that Crestone 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: 11.43% 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.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Crestone is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

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, Crestone has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Crestone a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Being a small town, Crestone does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Crestone Demographics

The overall education level of Crestone citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 29.41% of adults in Crestone have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Crestone in 2010 was $24,255, which is middle income relative to Colorado and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $97,020 for a family of four. However, Crestone contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Crestone also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 39.22% of its population below the federal poverty line.

The people who call Crestone home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Crestone residents report their race to be White. Important ancestries of people in Crestone include Italian, Scottish, European, and English.

The most common language spoken in Crestone is English. Other important languages spoken here include Mon-Khmer (Cambodian) and Other Asian languages.
