Mears Profile


Overview

Mears is a very small town located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 1,710 people and just one neighborhood, Mears is the 386th largest community in Michigan.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Mears isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Mears are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Mears is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Mears who work in office and administrative support (17.62%), food service (10.39%), and maintenance occupations (9.19%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.75% 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

Another notable thing is that Mears is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

The town 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, Mears has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Mears a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 17.39 minutes getting to work every day.

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

Mears Demographics

The percentage of adults in Mears who are college-educated is close to the national average for all communities of 21.84%: 19.10% of the adults in Mears have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Mears in 2010 was $21,011, which is middle income relative to Michigan, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $84,044 for a family of four. However, Mears contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Mears home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Mears residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Mears include English, Dutch, Irish, and Polish.
