Rockport Profile


Overview

Rockport is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maine. With a population of 3,381 people and just one neighborhood, Rockport is the 107th largest community in Maine.

Rockport real estate is some of the most expensive in Maine, although Rockport house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Rockport is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Rockport is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Rockport who work in office and administrative support (14.36%), management occupations (11.77%), and sales jobs (10.35%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 11.15% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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

Because of many things, Rockport is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Rockport a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Rockport has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Rockport’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

Rockport 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. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Rockport spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 17.97 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

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