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. Much of the housing stock in White City was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, White City is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 43.59% of the White City workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 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.
White City is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
