Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Jordan is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Jordan is a city of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Jordan who work in office and administrative support (12.26%), management occupations (12.00%) and sales jobs (10.15%).
Also of interest is that Jordan has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.43% 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
Because of many things, Jordan is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Jordan a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Jordan has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Jordan’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Jordan is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
