Sugarcreek is a somewhat small borough located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 5,162 people and just one neighborhood, Sugarcreek is the 270th largest community in Pennsylvania. Much of the housing stock in Sugarcreek 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 where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Sugarcreek is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sugarcreek is a borough of sales and office workers, professionals and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sugarcreek who work in office and administrative support (17.59%), management occupations (10.80%) and healthcare (9.20%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.36% 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
It is a fairly quiet borough 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!) Sugarcreek 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. Sugarcreek has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Sugarcreek than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Sugarcreek may be for you.
As is often the case in a small borough, Sugarcreek doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
