White City is a tiny city located in the state of Kansas. With a population of 588 people and just one neighborhood, White City is the 234th largest community in Kansas. White City has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
White City is a blue-collar town, with 43.59% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, White City is a city of service providers, construction workers and builders and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in White City who work in office and administrative support (10.26%), management occupations (7.26%) and personal care services (5.13%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.33% 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 city 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, White City is worth considering.
One downside of living in White City, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.50 minutes every day commuting to work.
Being a small city, White City does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
