South Fork Profile


Overview

South Fork is a tiny town located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 362 people and just one neighborhood, South Fork is the 208th largest community in Colorado.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, South Fork isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in South Fork are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, South Fork is a town of service providers, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in South Fork who work in management occupations (22.56%), sales jobs (14.36%), and maintenance occupations (10.77%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that South Fork is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. 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. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

South Fork is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, South Fork’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

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