Ashton Profile


Overview

Ashton is a very small city located in the state of Idaho. With a population of 1,055 people and just one neighborhood, Ashton is the 77th largest community in Idaho. Ashton has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities.

Occupations and Workforce

When you are in Ashton, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 43.57% of Ashton’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Ashton is a city of construction workers and builders, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Ashton who work in office and administrative support (10.24%), farm management occupations (10.00%), and teaching (9.29%).

In addition, many people in Ashton have jobs in agriculture, more so than in most other communities in America. As a result, you will see quite a number of farms around town.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.02% 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

Ashton is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Ashton’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Ashton spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 19.08 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.

Ashton is a small city, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Ashton, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 75.60% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

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

Ashton Demographics

The citizens of Ashton are slightly better educated than the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns, with 21.30% of adults in Ashton having a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Ashton in 2010 was $18,851, which is middle income relative to Idaho, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $75,404 for a family of four. However, Ashton contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Ashton is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Ashton home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Ashton residents report their race to be White. Ashton also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 27.47% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Ashton include German, Irish, Swiss, and Danish.

The most common language spoken in Ashton is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Polish.
