Superior is a very small city located in the state of Nebraska. With a population of 1,884 people and just one neighborhood, Superior is the 58th largest community in Nebraska. Much of the housing stock in Superior was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Superior is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Superior is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Superior who work in office and administrative support (12.45%), sales jobs (10.24%) and healthcare (10.04%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.13% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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
Residents will find that the city 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, Superior is worth considering.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Superior spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 14.96 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.
