Smyrna is a somewhat small town located in the state of Delaware. With a population of 13,149 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Smyrna is the seventh largest community in Delaware. Much of the housing stock in Smyrna was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Smyrna economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Smyrna, where the median household income is $63,794.00.
Also of interest is that Smyrna has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.57% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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.
One downside of living in Smyrna, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.05 minutes every day commuting to work.
