Merrifield Profile


Overview

Merrifield is a tiny town located in the state of Minnesota. With a population of 143 people and just one neighborhood, Merrifield is the 483rd largest community in Minnesota.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Merrifield is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Merrifield is a town of sales and office workers, managers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Merrifield who work in sales jobs (29.82%), management occupations (28.07%), and office and administrative support (8.77%).

A relatively large number of people in Merrifield telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 14.04% 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, Merrifield 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, Merrifield really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Merrifield 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.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Merrifield has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Merrifield has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Merrifield than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Merrifield may be for you.

Merrifield is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
