One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.58% 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.
