Harrisville is a tiny city located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 474 people and just one neighborhood, Harrisville is the 557th largest community in Michigan.
Occupations and Workforce
Harrisville is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.07% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Harrisville is a city of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Harrisville who work in personal care services (17.24%), food service (14.66%) and office and administrative support (12.07%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.96% 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
Residents will find that the city 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, Harrisville is worth considering.
Residents of the city have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 17.45 minutes getting to work every day.
As is often the case in a small city, Harrisville doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
