Silverton Profile


Overview

Silverton is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 663 people and just one neighborhood, Silverton is the 182nd largest community in Colorado. Much of the housing stock in Silverton was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Housing costs in Silverton 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, Silverton isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Silverton are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Silverton is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Silverton who work in sales jobs (24.68%), maintenance occupations (10.39%), and food service (7.79%).

Of important note, Silverton is also a town of artists. Silverton has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Silverton’s character.

Also of interest is that Silverton 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 Silverton telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.56% 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

Another notable thing is that Silverton is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 9.88 minutes getting to work every day.

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

Silverton Demographics

The education level of Silverton citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 33.49% of adults in Silverton have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Silverton in 2018 was $32,544, which is middle income relative to Colorado, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $130,176 for a family of four. However, Silverton contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

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

Important ancestries of people in Silverton include Irish, German, English, Italian, and French.
