Stem Profile


Overview

Stem is a tiny town located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 565 people and just one neighborhood, Stem is the 491st largest community in North Carolina. Much of the housing stock in Stem was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Stem economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Stem, where the median household income is $67,778.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Stem is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Stem is a town of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Stem who work in office and administrative support (16.16%), sales jobs (12.47%), and personal care services (11.04%).

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

Setting & Lifestyle

Because there are quite a few people attending college in Stem, it is thought of as a college town. To the benefit of the many students in the area, Stem provides a number of services, amenities and opportunities geared towards their needs and activities.

Because of many things, Stem 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, Stem really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Stem 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.

In Stem, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.91 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

Stem is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Stem, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 92.86% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

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