Norway is a very small city located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 2,817 people and just one neighborhood, Norway is the 296th largest community in Michigan. Norway has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Norway is a blue-collar town, with 43.36% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Norway is a city of sales and office workers, transportation and shipping workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Norway who work in sales jobs (12.10%), office and administrative support (11.43%) and teaching (6.97%).
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, Norway is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Norway is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.50 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
As is often the case in a small city, Norway doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
