Wexford is a medium-sized town located in the state of Pennsylvania. With a population of 26,752 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Wexford is the 34th largest community in Pennsylvania.

Wexford is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 93.15% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.44% 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.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.
