Wilton is a very small town located in the state of New Hampshire. With a population of 3,685 people and just one neighborhood, Wilton is the 100th largest community in New Hampshire.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Wilton is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Wilton is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wilton who work in office and administrative support (14.15%), sales jobs (13.13%) and management occupations (7.76%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.79% 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 town 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, Wilton is worth considering.
One downside of living in Wilton is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Wilton, the average commute to work is 30.77 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small town, Wilton doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
