Most Expensive Ipswich Neighborhoods

Ipswich is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.69% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

A relatively large number of people in Ipswich telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 7.75% 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.

One of the nice things about Ipswich is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays.
