Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Pryor is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Pryor is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Pryor who work in office and administrative support (18.14%), sales jobs (15.49%) and management occupations (12.39%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.29% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 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!) Pryor 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. Pryor has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Pryor than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Pryor may be for you.
One downside of living in Pryor, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.89 minutes every day commuting to work.
