Talking Rock Profile


Overview

Talking Rock is a tiny town located in the state of Georgia. With a population of 66 people and just one neighborhood, Talking Rock is the 474th largest community in Georgia.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Talking Rock, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 35.29% of Talking Rock’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Talking Rock is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Talking Rock who work in personal care services (17.65%), sales jobs (14.71%), and teaching (14.71%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 14.71% 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.


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Talking Rock is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Talking Rock a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Talking Rock has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Talking Rock’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

One downside of living in Talking Rock, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.74 minutes every day commuting to work.

Talking Rock is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Talking Rock 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. 0.97% 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.

As is often the case in a small town, Talking Rock doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Talking Rock Demographics

The percentage of adults in Talking Rock with college degrees is slightly lower than the national average of 21.84% for all communities. 13.33% of adults in Talking Rock have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Talking Rock in 2010 was $14,800, which is lower middle income relative to Georgia, and low income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $59,200 for a family of four. However, Talking Rock contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Talking Rock home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
