Occupations and Workforce
Brodheadsville is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.20% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Brodheadsville is a town of service providers, managers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Brodheadsville who work in management occupations (16.07%), office and administrative support (10.59%) and sales jobs (9.95%).
Of important note, Brodheadsville is also a town of artists. Brodheadsville has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Brodheadsville’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 20.92% 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 town 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, Brodheadsville is worth considering.
One downside of living in Brodheadsville, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 36.04 minutes every day commuting to work.
