Fayette Profile


Overview

Fayette is a very small city located in the state of Iowa. With a population of 1,491 people and just one neighborhood, Fayette is the 215th largest community in Iowa. Fayette has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Fayette is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.60% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Fayette is a city of professionals, service providers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Fayette who work in teaching (19.11%), sales jobs (11.79%), and food service (9.55%).

Of important note, Fayette is also a city of artists. Fayette has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Fayette’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.86% 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

Fayette is a place where college students are a big part of the character and culture of the town. Small towns have often struggled with declining populations over the past few decades, but the presence of such a large college student population has helped Fayette to fight this trend. Not only does the college population add spending and jobs to local economy, but it also contributes a very tangible, youthful energy to the town.

Fayette’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

Residents of the city have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 13.03 minutes getting to work every day.

Fayette is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.

Fayette Demographics

The overall education level of Fayette citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 31.56% of adults in Fayette have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Fayette in 2010 was $16,763, which is low income relative to Iowa and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $67,052 for a family of four. However, Fayette contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Fayette is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Fayette home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Fayette residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Fayette include Irish, Norwegian, English, and Italian.
