Peru Profile


Overview

Peru is a tiny city located in the state of Nebraska. With a population of 798 people and just one neighborhood, Peru is the 125th largest community in Nebraska. Peru has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities, Peru isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Peru are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Peru is a city of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Peru who work in office and administrative support (21.38%), food service (13.33%), and sales jobs (12.64%).

There are many members of the armed forces living in Peru. You will notice when you visit or live here that some of the people you meet or see around town are employed by the armed services - even if they are not always in uniform.

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


Setting & Lifestyle

Peru is a place where college students are a big part of the character and culture of the town. Small towns have often struggled with declining populations over the past few decades, but the presence of such a large college student population has helped Peru to fight this trend. Not only does the college population add spending and jobs to local economy, but it also contributes a very tangible, youthful energy to the town.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Peru spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 15.76 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.

Being a small city, Peru does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Peru Demographics

In terms of college education, Peru is somewhat better educated than the 21.84% who have a 4-year degree or higher in the typical US community: 28.66% of adults 25 and older in the city have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Peru in 2010 was $16,996, which is low income relative to Nebraska and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $67,984 for a family of four.

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

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