Garden Profile


Overview

Garden is a tiny village located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 217 people and just one neighborhood, Garden is the 610th largest community in Michigan.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Garden is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 45.61% of the Garden workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Garden is a village of construction workers and builders, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Garden who work in sales jobs (8.77%), personal care services (7.02%), and food service (7.02%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 20.75% 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

The overall crime rate in Garden is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Garden is worth considering.

One downside of living in Garden is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Garden, the average commute to work is 30.42 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Garden is very much a car-oriented village. This is because the population of Garden 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. 0.98% 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.

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

Garden Demographics

In terms of college education, the citizens of Garden rank slightly lower than the national average. 14.94% of adults 25 and older in Garden 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 Garden in 2010 was $22,257, which is middle income relative to Michigan and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $89,028 for a family of four.

Garden is a somewhat ethnically-diverse village. The people who call Garden home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Garden residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Garden include German, French Canadian, European, and Finnish.

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