Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Harris is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Harris is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Harris who work in office and administrative support (16.24%), management occupations (12.24%) and teaching (5.88%).
A relatively large number of people in Harris telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.33% 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
Because of many things, Harris 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, Harris really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Harris 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, Harris has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Harris a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Harris, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.28 minutes every day commuting to work.
