Wayne Profile


Overview

Wayne is a somewhat small city located in the state of Nebraska. With a population of 5,569 people and just one neighborhood, Wayne is the 30th largest community in Nebraska.

Occupations and Workforce

Wayne is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 87.24% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Wayne is a city of sales and office workers, service providers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Wayne who work in office and administrative support (15.35%), sales jobs (11.21%), and teaching (10.84%).

Of important note, Wayne is also a city of artists. Wayne has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Wayne’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.84% 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

Wayne 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 Wayne 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.

The overall crime rate in Wayne is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Wayne spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 14.49 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.

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

Wayne Demographics

Wayne is one of the most well-educated cities in the nation. 49.58% of adults in Wayne have at least a bachelor's degree. Compare that to the average community in America, which has just 21.84% with a bachelor's degree or higher.

The per capita income in Wayne in 2010 was $23,439, which is middle income relative to Nebraska and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $93,756 for a family of four. However, Wayne contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

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