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.

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.

During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
