Occupations and Workforce

Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Eagle Creek is a town of sales and office workers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Eagle Creek who work in office and administrative support (15.43%), management occupations (10.75%) and healthcare (6.42%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.07% 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
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Eagle Creek has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Eagle Creek has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Eagle Creek than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Eagle Creek may be for you.
One downside of living in Eagle Creek, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 35.52 minutes every day commuting to work.
