Persia Profile


Overview

Persia is a tiny city located in the state of Iowa. With a population of 299 people and just one neighborhood, Persia is the 396th largest community in Iowa. Persia has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Persia real estate is some of the most expensive in Iowa, although Persia house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Overall, Persia is a city of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Persia who work in office and administrative support (14.67%), sales jobs (14.00%), and healthcare (6.67%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Persia is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Persia really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Persia perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

In Persia, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 36.47 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Persia 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.
