Searchlight Profile


Overview

Searchlight is a tiny town located in the state of Nevada. With a population of 572 people and just one neighborhood, Searchlight is the 49th largest community in Nevada.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Searchlight is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Searchlight is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Searchlight who work in office and administrative support (25.74%), healthcare (12.87%), and sales jobs (9.90%).

Of important note, Searchlight is also a town of artists. Searchlight has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Searchlight’s character.

Setting & Lifestyle

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!) Searchlight 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. Searchlight has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Searchlight than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Searchlight may be for you.

Searchlight is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Searchlight isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

Being a small town, Searchlight does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
