Sun Valley Profile


Overview

Sun Valley is a very small city located in the state of Idaho. With a population of 1,422 people and just one neighborhood, Sun Valley is the 72nd largest community in Idaho.

Sun Valley home prices are not only among the most expensive in Idaho, but Sun Valley real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Sun Valley is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 93.70% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Sun Valley is a city of service providers, professionals, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sun Valley who work in food service (21.08%), management occupations (18.25%), and teaching (11.70%).

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

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 16.82% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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

Another notable thing is that Sun Valley is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the city’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

The city is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Sun Valley has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Sun Valley a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One of the benefits of Sun Valley is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 13.61 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Despite being a small city, Sun Valley has a lot of people using the bus to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the bus are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.
