Rush Profile


Overview

Rush is a very small town located in the state of Kentucky. With a population of 2,106 people and just one neighborhood, Rush is the 188th largest community in Kentucky.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Rush is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Rush is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Rush who work in healthcare (12.76%), management occupations (10.30%), and sales jobs (10.21%).

Setting & Lifestyle

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Rush has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Rush a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

In Rush, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.88 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Rush is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Rush isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 98.33% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
