Penney Farms Profile


Overview

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Penney Farms is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Penney Farms is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Penney Farms who work in sales jobs (43.28%), computer science and math (20.90%), and business and financial occupations (10.45%).

Also of interest is that Penney Farms 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 Penney Farms telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 44.07% 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

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!) Penney Farms 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. Penney Farms has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Penney Farms than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Penney Farms may be for you.

In Penney Farms, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 44.32 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Penney Farms is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Penney Farms isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

Being a small town, Penney Farms does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
