Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Riverdale is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Riverdale is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Riverdale who work in office and administrative support (12.60%), management occupations (6.68%) and personal care services (6.43%).
A relatively large number of people in Riverdale telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 7.64% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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 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, Riverdale has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Riverdale a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small town, Riverdale doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
