Stockholm is a somewhat small town located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 4,921 people and just one neighborhood, Stockholm is the 320th largest community in New Jersey.
Real Estate Prices
Housing costs in Stockholm are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in New Jersey.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Stockholm is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Stockholm is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Stockholm who work in sales jobs (16.30%), management occupations (11.66%) and office and administrative support (11.51%).
Also of interest is that Stockholm has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.92% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Stockholm has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Stockholm a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One downside of living in Stockholm, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 38.74 minutes every day commuting to work.
