Velma Profile


Overview

Velma is a tiny town located in the state of Oklahoma. With a population of 595 people and just one neighborhood, Velma is the 265th largest community in Oklahoma.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Velma is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 37.40% of the Velma workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Velma is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Velma who work in office and administrative support (13.41%), sales jobs (10.16%), and food service (8.94%).

Setting & Lifestyle

Velma’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe 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, Velma is worth considering.

As is often the case in a small town, Velma doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Velma Demographics

The percentage of people in Velma with college degrees is quite a bit lower than the national average for cities and towns of 21.84%: just 11.19% of people over 25 have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Velma in 2018 was $22,576, which is upper middle income relative to Oklahoma, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $90,304 for a family of four. However, Velma contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Important ancestries of people in Velma include German, Irish, English, Dutch West Indian, and Scots-Irish.
