Nesquehoning is a very small borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 3,279 people and just one neighborhood, Nesquehoning is the 427th largest community in Pennsylvania. Much of the housing stock in Nesquehoning was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic boroughs in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some boroughs, Nesquehoning isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Nesquehoning are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Nesquehoning is a borough of service providers, sales and office workers and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Nesquehoning who work in office and administrative support (13.78%), healthcare suport services (12.77%) and sales jobs (11.84%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.21% 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.
