This is a small community in a single neighborhood. As throughout the site, some neighborhood-level data are reserved for subscribers.





Overview


Ancramdale is a very small town located in the state of New York. With a population of 1,429 people and just one neighborhood, Ancramdale is the 687th largest community in New York.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Ancramdale is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Ancramdale is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Ancramdale who work in healthcare (12.52%), management occupations (10.36%), and sales jobs (10.22%).

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

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 14.20% 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

Another notable thing is that Ancramdale 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.

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, Ancramdale is worth considering.

The Neighbors

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes.

Ethnicity / Ancestry

That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.
