Burlington is a somewhat small town located in the state of Connecticut. With a population of 9,519 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Burlington is the 99th largest community in Connecticut.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.96% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
