Mettawa Profile


Overview

Mettawa is a tiny village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 551 people and just one neighborhood, Mettawa is the 742nd largest community in Illinois.

Mettawa home prices are not only among the most expensive in Illinois, but Mettawa real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Mettawa is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 90.67% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Mettawa is a village of managers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Mettawa who work in management occupations (26.87%), sales jobs (14.18%), and office and administrative support (8.58%).

Also of interest is that Mettawa has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 17.24% 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

In addition, Mettawa is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.

Because of many things, Mettawa 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, Mettawa really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Mettawa 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.

One downside of living in Mettawa, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.31 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

In Mettawa, a lot of people use the train to get to work every day though Mettawa is a relatively small village. Those that ride the train are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
