Lakeview is a very small town located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 2,298 people and just one neighborhood, Lakeview is the 117th largest community in Oregon.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Lakeview is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lakeview is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Lakeview who work in office and administrative support (12.93%), sales jobs (11.49%) and healthcare suport services (10.52%).
And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Lakeview has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.
Also of interest is that Lakeview has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Setting & Lifestyle
One of the benefits of Lakeview is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 11.05 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 town, Lakeview doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
