Baxter Profile


Overview

Baxter is a very small city located in the state of Iowa. With a population of 1,103 people and just one neighborhood, Baxter is the 247th largest community in Iowa.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Baxter is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Baxter is a city of service providers, sales and office workers, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Baxter who work in office and administrative support (12.17%), healthcare suport services (10.84%), and sales jobs (8.19%).

Also of interest is that Baxter has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.00% 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. 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

In Baxter, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.40 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

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

Baxter Demographics

In terms of college education, Baxter is nearly on par with the US average for all cities of 21.84%: 19.58% of adults 25 and older in Baxter have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Baxter in 2010 was $28,292, which is wealthy relative to Iowa, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $113,168 for a family of four. However, Baxter contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Baxter home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Baxter residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Baxter include English, Dutch, Irish, and Norwegian.

The most common language spoken in Baxter is English. Other important languages spoken here include West Germanic languages and German.
