Lenox is a somewhat small town located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 5,004 people and just one neighborhood, Lenox is the 245th largest community in Massachusetts.
Occupations and Workforce
Lenox is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 89.12% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Lenox is a town of professionals, service providers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lenox who work in management occupations (16.21%), healthcare (10.44%) and teaching (9.27%).
Of important note, Lenox is also a town of artists. Lenox has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Lenox’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.82% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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.
