Bush Profile


Overview

Bush is a very small town located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 3,555 people and just one neighborhood, Bush is the 120th largest community in Louisiana.

Bush real estate is some of the most expensive in Louisiana, although Bush house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Bush is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bush is a town of service providers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bush who work in teaching (9.20%), sales jobs (8.79%), and management occupations (8.72%).

Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Bush is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Bush a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Bush has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Bush’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

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, Bush is worth considering.

One downside of living in Bush, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 36.86 minutes every day commuting to work.

Bush 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.
