Occupations and Workforce

There are especially a lot of people living in Dagsboro who work in management occupations (11.56%), sales jobs (10.22%), and maintenance occupations (9.78%).

Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Dagsboro has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Dagsboro has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Dagsboro than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Dagsboro may be for you.

Dagsboro is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Dagsboro is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Dagsboro, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 98.03% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

Dagsboro is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
