There are especially a lot of people living in Leesburg who work in office and administrative support (16.16%), management occupations (12.80%), and food service (6.10%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.95% 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.
