Start Profile


Overview

Start is a tiny town located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 982 people and just one neighborhood, Start is the 235th largest community in Louisiana. Start has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Start, where the median household income is $53,214.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Start is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Start is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Start who work in office and administrative support (23.83%), management occupations (18.13%), and the sciences (10.10%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Start has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

A relatively large number of people in Start telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.10% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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

Start’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

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, Start is worth considering.

Start is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Start 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. 100.00% 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.

As is often the case in a small town, Start doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Start Demographics

In terms of college education, Start is nearly on par with the US average for all cities of 21.84%: 19.71% of adults 25 and older in Start have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Start in 2018 was $22,623, which is middle income relative to Louisiana, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $90,492 for a family of four. However, Start contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Start home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Start residents report their race to be White. Important ancestries of people in Start include Irish, English, Scottish, German, and Scots-Irish.

The most common language spoken in Start is English. Other important languages spoken here include Langs. of India and Italian.
