Sun Profile


Overview

Sun is a tiny village located in the state of Louisiana. With a population of 483 people and just one neighborhood, Sun is the 263rd largest community in Louisiana.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages, Sun isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Sun are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sun is a village of service providers, professionals, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sun who work in food service (10.09%), office and administrative support (9.17%), and maintenance occupations (7.34%).

A relatively large number of people in Sun telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 11.54% 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

Overall, Sun’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.

It is a fairly quiet village because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Sun has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Sun has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Sun than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Sun may be for you.

One downside of living in Sun is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Sun, the average commute to work is 41.28 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Sun is a small village, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Sun, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 0.97% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

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

Sun Demographics

The population of Sun has a very low overall level of education: only 7.80% of people over 25 hold a 4-year college degree or higher.

The per capita income in Sun in 2010 was $20,796, 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 $83,184 for a family of four. However, Sun contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Sun is a somewhat ethnically-diverse village. The people who call Sun home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Sun residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Sun include German, French , English, and Italian.

The most common language spoken in Sun is English. Other important languages spoken here include Japanese and French.
