Cave Junction is a very small city located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 1,886 people and just one neighborhood, Cave Junction is the 135th largest community in Oregon.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities, Cave Junction isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Cave Junction are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Cave Junction is a city of managers, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cave Junction who work in management occupations (28.77%), sales jobs (14.16%) and office and administrative support (6.93%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 16.44% 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, Cave Junction is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Cave Junction is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 17.51 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
As is often the case in a small city, Cave Junction doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
