Garden Prairie Profile


Overview

Garden Prairie is a tiny village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 355 people and just one neighborhood, Garden Prairie is the 775th largest community in Illinois. Garden Prairie has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Garden Prairie is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Garden Prairie is a village of sales and office workers, professionals, and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Garden Prairie who work in sales jobs (21.18%), teaching (20.00%), and office and administrative support (11.76%).

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

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.59% 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.

One downside of living in Garden Prairie, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.56 minutes every day commuting to work.

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