Lebanon is a somewhat small town located in the state of Connecticut. With a population of 7,309 people and just one neighborhood, Lebanon is the 117th largest community in Connecticut.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Lebanon isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Lebanon are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lebanon is a town of professionals, service providers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lebanon who work in management occupations (10.57%), teaching (10.55%) and office and administrative support (8.92%).
Also of interest is that Lebanon 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 Lebanon telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.18% 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
Lebanon 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, Lebanon’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
In Lebanon, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.22 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
