Eastport Profile


Overview

Eastport is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maine. With a population of 1,266 people and just one neighborhood, Eastport is the 196th largest community in Maine. Eastport has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Eastport is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Eastport is a city of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Eastport who work in office and administrative support (16.00%), teaching (10.55%), and food service (8.55%).

A relatively large number of people in Eastport telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 7.37% 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

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

Eastport is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

One of the benefits of Eastport is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.58 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.

Eastport Demographics

The overall education level of Eastport citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 29.83% of adults in Eastport have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Eastport in 2010 was $22,640, which is lower middle income relative to Maine, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $90,560 for a family of four.
