Merom Profile


Overview

Merom is a tiny town located in the state of Indiana. With a population of 225 people and just one neighborhood, Merom is the 432nd largest community in Indiana. Merom has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Merom is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Merom is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Merom who work in office and administrative support (14.49%), law enforcement and fire fighting (13.04%), and sales jobs (11.59%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Merom 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, Merom really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Merom 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 Merom is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Merom, the average commute to work is 30.33 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Merom is a very car-oriented town. 0.99% of residents commute to work in a private automobile rather than by other means, such as public transit, bicycling, or walking. This is because Merom is a small town , and most people who live here have to drive out of town for work, and the town population is not large nor dense enough to support an extensive public transportation system. Merom has a lot of rural roads, and houses can be far apart. Many residents drive out of town for regular shopping trips as well.

As is often the case in a small town, Merom doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
