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 managers, construction workers and builders and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Searchlight who work in management occupations (31.25%), office and administrative support (14.58%) and sales jobs (9.03%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 20.14% 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
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Searchlight is worth considering.
Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 11.02 minutes getting to work every day.
Being a small town, Searchlight does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
