Belfast Profile


Overview

Belfast is a somewhat small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maine. With a population of 6,682 people and just one neighborhood, Belfast is the 47th largest community in Maine. Much of the housing stock in Belfast was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Belfast is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Belfast is a city of service providers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Belfast who work in sales jobs (13.62%), management occupations (10.08%), and office and administrative support (8.59%).

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

Also of interest is that Belfast has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

A relatively large number of people in Belfast telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 13.67% 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. 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

The city 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, Belfast has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Belfast a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One of the nice things about Belfast 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.

As is often the case in a small city, Belfast doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Belfast Demographics

The education level of Belfast ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Belfast, 42.44% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.

The per capita income in Belfast in 2010 was $23,969, which is middle income relative to Maine and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $95,876 for a family of four. However, Belfast contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Belfast home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Belfast residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Belfast include German, Irish, French , and Scottish.

The most common language spoken in Belfast is English. Other important languages spoken here include German and Spanish.
