Mead Profile


Overview

Mead is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 4,575 people and just one neighborhood, Mead is the 97th largest community in Colorado. Mead has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Mead, where the median household income is $92,011.00.

Mead home prices are not only among the most expensive in Colorado, but Mead real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Mead is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.16% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Mead is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Mead who work in management occupations (16.57%), office and administrative support (10.53%), and sales jobs (10.09%).

Also of interest is that Mead has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

A relatively large number of people in Mead telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.82% 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

In addition, Mead is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Mead is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Mead a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Mead has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Mead’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

In Mead, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.90 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

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

Mead Demographics

The citizens of Mead are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 35.83% of adults in Mead have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.

The per capita income in Mead in 2010 was $33,920, which is upper middle income relative to Colorado, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $135,680 for a family of four. However, Mead contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Mead is a somewhat ethnically-diverse town. The people who call Mead home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.

People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 10.21% of the town’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Mead include German, English, Irish, French, and Swedish.
