Severance Profile


Overview

Severance is a very small town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 6,494 people and just one neighborhood, Severance is the 98th largest community in Colorado. Severance 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 Severance, where the median household income is $106,141.00.

Housing costs in Severance are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Severance isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Severance are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Severance is a town of managers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Severance who work in management occupations (17.97%), office and administrative support (9.73%), and business and financial occupations (8.07%).

Also of interest is that Severance 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 Severance telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.26% 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, Severance 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, Severance is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Severance really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Severance perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

As is often the case in a small town, Severance doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
