Gaines Profile


Overview

Gaines is a tiny village located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 367 people and just one neighborhood, Gaines is the 580th largest community in Michigan. Gaines has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages.

Occupations and Workforce

Gaines is a blue-collar town, with 37.13% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Gaines is a village of service providers, sales and office workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Gaines who work in office and administrative support (15.57%), healthcare suport services (8.98%), and personal care services (7.19%).

Setting & Lifestyle

The village is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Gaines has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Gaines a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

In Gaines, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.03 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Gaines is very much a car-oriented village. This is because the population of Gaines isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 93.13% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

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

Gaines Demographics

In Gaines, just 8.97% of people over 25 hold a college degree, which is very low compared to the rest of the nation, whereas the average among all cities is 21.84%.

The per capita income in Gaines in 2010 was $19,999, which is lower middle income relative to Michigan and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $79,996 for a family of four. However, Gaines contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The greatest number of Gaines residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Gaines include English, Irish, Polish, and French .

The most common language spoken in Gaines is English. Other important languages spoken here include Polish and Italian.
