Bandon is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 3,037 people and just one neighborhood, Bandon is the 106th largest community in Oregon.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities, Bandon isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Bandon are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Bandon is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Bandon who work in sales jobs (12.93%), office and administrative support (8.29%) and business and financial occupations (6.99%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.67% 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 city 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, Bandon is worth considering.
Bandon is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
Being a small city, Bandon does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
