Ashton Profile


Overview

Ashton is a very small city located in the state of Idaho. With a population of 1,063 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

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Ashton is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 43.57% of the Ashton workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. 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%).

Another important characteristic of Ashton is that a lot of people work in agricultural jobs, especially compared to most other communities in America, and there are quite a number of farms in town.

A relatively large number of people in Ashton telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.02% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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, Ashton 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, Ashton really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Ashton 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.

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 19.08 minutes getting to work every day.

Being a small city, Ashton does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
