Bar Harbor Profile


Overview

Bar Harbor is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maine. With a population of 5,321 people and just one neighborhood, Bar Harbor is the 59th largest community in Maine.

Bar Harbor home prices are not only among the most expensive in Maine, but Bar Harbor real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Bar Harbor isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Bar Harbor are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bar Harbor is a town of professionals, service providers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Bar Harbor who work in food service (12.90%), management occupations (12.80%), and teaching (10.78%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Bar Harbor has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.77% 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.
