Norway Profile


Overview

Norway is a somewhat small town located in the state of Maine. With a population of 4,927 people and just one neighborhood, Norway is the 64th largest community in Maine.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Norway is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Norway is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Norway who work in office and administrative support (12.47%), sales jobs (9.25%), and healthcare (8.69%).

A relatively large number of people in Norway telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.09% 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 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!) Norway 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. Norway has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Norway than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Norway may be for you.

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

Norway Demographics

In terms of college education, the citizens of Norway rank slightly lower than the national average. 15.28% of adults 25 and older in Norway have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree, while 21.84% of adults have a 4-year degree or higher in the average American community.

The per capita income in Norway in 2010 was $20,134, which is low income relative to Maine, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $80,536 for a family of four. However, Norway contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

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

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