Paw Paw Profile


Overview

Paw Paw is a tiny village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 821 people and just one neighborhood, Paw Paw is the 667th largest community in Illinois. Paw Paw has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Paw Paw is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Paw Paw is a village of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Paw Paw who work in office and administrative support (19.74%), sales jobs (10.00%), and food service (8.95%).


Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet village because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Paw Paw has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Paw Paw has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Paw Paw than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Paw Paw may be for you.

One downside of living in Paw Paw is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Paw Paw, the average commute to work is 33.50 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Being a small village, Paw Paw does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

The per capita income in Paw Paw in 2010 was $24,569, which is middle income relative to Illinois and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $98,276 for a family of four. However, Paw Paw contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
