Occupations and Workforce
Sun is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-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 healthcare (7.34%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 11.54% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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
Sun’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
The village 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, Sun has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Sun a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Sun, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 41.28 minutes every day commuting to work.
Sun is very much a car-oriented village. This is because the population of Sun 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. 96.74% 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.
Being a small village, Sun does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
