Casco is a very small town located in the state of Maine. With a population of 3,845 people and just one neighborhood, Casco is the 94th largest community in Maine.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Casco is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Casco is a town of service providers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Casco who work in management occupations (13.24%), sales jobs (10.37%) and office and administrative support (9.09%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.85% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Casco 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.
The town 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, Casco has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Casco a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Casco, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.28 minutes every day commuting to work.
Casco is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
