Braithwaite Profile


Overview

Braithwaite is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 1,974 people and just one neighborhood, Braithwaite is the 161st largest community in Louisiana. There's nothing like the smell of a brand new house, and in Braithwaite, you'll find that a large proportion of houses were recently built. New growth in residential real estate is an indication that people are choosing to move to Braithwaite, and putting down their money on brand new construction. Braithwaite’s real estate is, on average, some of the newest in the nation. Braithwaite does seem to be experiencing an influx of affluent people, because the median household income is $21,182.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Braithwaite isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Braithwaite are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs.

There are especially a lot of people living in Braithwaite who work in teaching (15.45%), maintenance occupations (13.95%), and office and administrative support (11.30%).

Setting & Lifestyle

Residents will find that the town 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, Braithwaite is worth considering.

Braithwaite is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

In Braithwaite, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 32.53 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Braithwaite is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
