Lampe is a somewhat small town located in the state of Missouri. With a population of 5,219 people and just one neighborhood, Lampe is the 126th largest community in Missouri.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Lampe is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lampe is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Lampe who work in office and administrative support (15.75%), sales jobs (11.19%) and food service (10.50%).
Of important note, Lampe is also a town of artists. Lampe has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Lampe’s character.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Lampe is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Lampe is worth considering.
As is often the case in a small town, Lampe doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
