Pioche is a very small town located in the state of Nevada. With a population of 997 people and just one neighborhood, Pioche is the 41st largest community in Nevada. Pioche has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Pioche is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Pioche is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Pioche who work in sales jobs (29.55%), personal care services (25.57%) and office and administrative support (21.02%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Pioche is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Overall, Pioche’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
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, Pioche has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Pioche a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
As is often the case in a small town, Pioche doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
