Altona Profile


Overview

Altona is a tiny town located in the state of New York. With a population of 744 people and just one neighborhood, Altona is the 782nd largest community in New York.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Altona is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 40.21% of the Altona workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Altona is a town of service providers, production and manufacturing workers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Altona who work in personal care services (29.90%), office and administrative support (16.49%), and sales jobs (7.22%).


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

One downside of living in Altona, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.40 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.

For a small town, Altona has a lot of people who use public transit to get to work, and those that do mostly ride the bus. This suggests that a real need for low-cost transportation in Altona exists, and local transit is helping to meet that need.

Altona Demographics

Altona ranks among the bottom of the nation in terms of college education compared to other cities and towns: only 3.91% of people over 25 have a college degree.

The per capita income in Altona in 2010 was $7,192, which is low income relative to New York and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $28,768 for a family of four.
