Rockaway Beach Profile


Overview

Rockaway Beach 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 1,347 people and just one neighborhood, Rockaway Beach is the 154th largest community in Oregon.

Occupations and Workforce

Rockaway Beach is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 90.15% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Rockaway Beach is a city of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Rockaway Beach who work in office and administrative support (17.29%), food service (13.35%), and sales jobs (10.28%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.84% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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

Another notable thing is that Rockaway Beach is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Rockaway Beach’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Rockaway Beach 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. Rockaway Beach has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Rockaway Beach than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Rockaway Beach may be for you.

Rockaway Beach 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.

As is often the case in a small city, Rockaway Beach doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Rockaway Beach Demographics

The education level of Rockaway Beach citizens, measured as those with bachelor's degrees or advanced degrees, is similar to the national average for all American cities and towns. 20.04% of adults 25 and older in Rockaway Beach have a college degree.

The per capita income in Rockaway Beach in 2010 was $20,658, which is lower middle income relative to Oregon and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $82,632 for a family of four.
