Kiowa is a tiny town located in the state of Oklahoma. With a population of 699 people and just one neighborhood, Kiowa is the 254th largest community in Oklahoma.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Kiowa isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Kiowa are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Kiowa is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Kiowa who work in sales jobs (10.73%), office and administrative support (9.27%) and food service (8.78%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.78% 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
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, Kiowa has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Kiowa a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Kiowa is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
