Pearlington Profile


Overview

Pearlington is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Mississippi. With a population of 1,301 people and just one neighborhood, Pearlington is the 151st largest community in Mississippi. Pearlington has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Pearlington, where the median household income is $41,152.00.

Pearlington real estate is some of the most expensive in Mississippi, although Pearlington house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Pearlington is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 36.51% of the Pearlington workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Pearlington is a town of managers, construction workers and builders, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Pearlington who work in management occupations (19.22%), office and administrative support (13.40%), and healthcare suport services (7.58%).

Setting & Lifestyle

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, Pearlington is worth considering.

Pearlington is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

In Pearlington, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 34.01 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

As is often the case in a small town, Pearlington doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Pearlington Demographics

Pearlington ranks among the bottom of the nation in terms of college education compared to other cities and towns: only 5.56% of people over 25 have a college degree.

The per capita income in Pearlington in 2010 was $20,170, which is upper middle income relative to Mississippi, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $80,680 for a family of four. However, Pearlington contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
