Occupations and Workforce
Edgeworth is a decidedly white-collar borough, with fully 96.40% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Edgeworth is a borough of professionals, managers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Edgeworth who work in management occupations (20.61%), sales jobs (15.91%) and healthcare (9.68%).
Of important note, Edgeworth is also a borough of artists. Edgeworth has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Edgeworth’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.50% 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
In addition, Edgeworth is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
Because of many things, Edgeworth is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Edgeworth really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Edgeworth perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
