Truro Profile


Overview

Truro is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 2,007 people and just one neighborhood, Truro is the 288th largest community in Massachusetts.

Truro home prices are not only among the most expensive in Massachusetts, but Truro real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Truro is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Truro is a town of professionals, service providers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Truro who work in office and administrative support (12.46%), healthcare (9.80%), and management occupations (8.88%).

Of important note, Truro is also a town of artists. Truro has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Truro’s character.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.04% 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

Another notable thing is that Truro is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

Because of many things, Truro is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Truro a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Truro has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Truro’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

It is a fairly quiet town 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!) Truro 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. Truro has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Truro than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Truro may be for you.

One of the nice things about Truro 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. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Truro Demographics

The citizens of Truro are among the most well-educated in the nation: 49.34% of adults in Truro have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Truro in 2010 was $39,408, which is upper middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $157,632 for a family of four. However, Truro contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Truro home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Truro residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Truro include English, Portuguese, German, and Italian.

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