Chesterfield Profile


Overview

Chesterfield is a very small town located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 4,540 people and just one neighborhood, Chesterfield is the 337th largest community in New Jersey. There's nothing like the smell of a brand new house, and in Chesterfield, you'll find that a large proportion of houses were recently built.

Chesterfield does seem to be experiencing an influx of affluent people, because the median household income is $119,712.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Chesterfield is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.52% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.46% 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

In addition, Chesterfield is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'. But such people can and do regularly live in small towns, suburbs and rural areas, as well as in big cities. They read, support the arts and high-end shops, and love travel.

On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the town, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

In Chesterfield, a lot of people use the train to get to work every day though Chesterfield is a relatively small town. Those that ride the train are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.
