Custer Profile


Overview

Custer is a tiny village located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 285 people and just one neighborhood, Custer is the 600th largest community in Michigan.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Custer is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Custer is a village of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Custer who work in office and administrative support (20.62%), sales jobs (17.53%), and personal care services (8.25%).


Setting & Lifestyle

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

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

Being a small village, Custer does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
