Crestone Profile


Overview

Crestone is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 140 people and just one neighborhood, Crestone is the 224th largest community in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Crestone, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 56.25% of Crestone’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. 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 personal care services (43.75%), office and administrative support (0.00%), and sales jobs (0.00%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 21.43% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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

Overall, Crestone’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Crestone has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Crestone has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Crestone than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Crestone may be for you.

Crestone is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Crestone isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

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 percentage of adults in Crestone who are college-educated is close to the national average for all communities of 21.84%: 18.06% of the adults in Crestone have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Crestone in 2018 was $65,602, which is wealthy relative to Colorado and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $262,408 for a family of four. However, Crestone contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
