Golden City Profile


Overview

Golden City is a tiny city located in the state of Missouri. With a population of 729 people and just one neighborhood, Golden City is the 380th largest community in Missouri. Much of the housing stock in Golden City was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Golden City is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 50.00% of the Golden City workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Golden City is a city of service providers, production and manufacturing workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Golden City who work in office and administrative support (7.77%), food service (7.77%), and personal care services (6.31%).


Setting & Lifestyle

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, Golden City has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Golden City a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
