Newport is a somewhat small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 10,496 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Newport is the 54th largest community in Oregon.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.51% 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.
Newport 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

The education level of Newport citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 30.88% of adults in Newport have at least a bachelor's degree.
