Hanover is a tiny village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 818 people and just one neighborhood, Hanover is the 671st largest community in Illinois.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some villages, Hanover isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Hanover are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Hanover is a village of sales and office workers, service providers and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Hanover who work in office and administrative support (16.80%), sales jobs (7.61%) and management occupations (6.56%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.77% 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
Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Hanover is worth considering.
Hanover 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.
