Living in Camden

Camden is a very small town located in the state of Delaware. With a population of 4,211 people and two associated neighborhoods, Camden is the 17th largest community in Delaware. Much of the housing stock in Camden was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Camden economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Camden, where the median household income is $60,549.00.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.85% 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. 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.

The per capita income in Camden in 2018 was $30,893, which is lower middle income relative to Delaware, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $123,572 for a family of four. However, Camden contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
