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. Crestone has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Crestone is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 37.74% of the Crestone workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Crestone is a town of construction workers and builders, service providers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Crestone who work in food service (22.64%), sales jobs (16.98%), and management occupations (11.32%).

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: 7.55% 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.

One of the benefits of Crestone is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 12.40 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Crestone is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.

Crestone Demographics

The education level of Crestone citizens, measured as those with bachelor's degrees or advanced degrees, is similar to the national average for all American cities and towns. 20.88% of adults 25 and older in Crestone have a college degree.

The per capita income in Crestone in 2010 was $11,966, which is low income relative to Colorado and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $47,864 for a family of four.

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 Welsh, Scottish, German, and European.

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