Living in Bolivia

Bolivia is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 185 people and three associated neighborhoods, Bolivia is the 567th largest community in North Carolina. Much of the housing stock in Bolivia was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Bolivia economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Bolivia, where the median household income is $50,972.00.

Also of interest is that Bolivia has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 25.76% 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.

Because of many things, Bolivia is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Bolivia really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Bolivia perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Bolivia 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.

Bolivia is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.

The education level of Bolivia ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Bolivia, 45.14% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.

The per capita income in Bolivia in 2018 was $19,372, which is low income relative to North Carolina and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $77,488 for a family of four. However, Bolivia contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Bolivia home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Bolivia residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Bolivia include Irish, German, French, Welsh, and English.

The most common language spoken in Bolivia is English. Other important languages spoken here include French and Spanish.
