Hardin is a tiny village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 943 people and just one neighborhood, Hardin is the 645th largest community in Illinois.
Occupations and Workforce
Hardin is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Hardin is a village of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Hardin who work in office and administrative support (13.83%), sales jobs (9.63%) and food service (8.89%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.42% 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, Hardin is worth considering.
As is often the case in a small village, Hardin doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
