Beaver Island Profile


Overview

Beaver Island is a tiny town located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 665 people and just one neighborhood, Beaver Island is the 527th largest community in Michigan.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Beaver Island isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Beaver Island are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Beaver Island is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Beaver Island who work in office and administrative support (11.40%), sales jobs (11.40%), and maintenance occupations (10.53%).

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

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.87% 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 Beaver Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Beaver Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Beaver Island’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.

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

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 12.11 minutes getting to work every day.

Beaver Island Demographics

The overall education level of Beaver Island citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 31.91% of adults in Beaver Island have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Beaver Island in 2010 was $26,457, which is upper middle income relative to Michigan and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $105,828 for a family of four. However, Beaver Island contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
