Emily is a tiny city located in the state of Minnesota. With a population of 825 people and just one neighborhood, Emily is the 368th largest community in Minnesota.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities, Emily isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Emily are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Emily is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Emily who work in sales jobs (12.00%), office and administrative support (10.77%) and food service (9.85%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.70% 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 Emily is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Emily’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Emily is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Emily really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Emily perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
The city 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, Emily has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Emily a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Being a small city, Emily does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
