Overall, Placitas is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Placitas who work in management occupations (16.14%), sales jobs (11.15%), and healthcare (8.05%).

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.

Placitas is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Placitas’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Placitas has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Placitas has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Placitas than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Placitas may be for you.

One downside of living in Placitas, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.12 minutes every day commuting to work.
