Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Laurie is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Laurie is a city of service providers, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Laurie who work in management occupations (23.00%), food service (14.00%) and sales jobs (12.00%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.50% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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
It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Laurie 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. Laurie has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Laurie than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Laurie may be for you.
