Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Johannesburg isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Johannesburg are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Johannesburg is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Johannesburg who work in sales jobs (18.50%), office and administrative support (12.25%) and management occupations (10.05%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Johannesburg is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Overall, Johannesburg’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
Residents will find that the town 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, Johannesburg is worth considering.
