Jamestown Profile


Overview

Jamestown is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Rhode Island. With a population of 5,482 people and just one neighborhood, Jamestown is the 36th largest community in Rhode Island.

Jamestown home prices are not only among the most expensive in Rhode Island, but Jamestown real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Jamestown is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 89.47% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Jamestown is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Jamestown who work in management occupations (14.06%), teaching (10.57%), and office and administrative support (10.13%).

Of important note, Jamestown is also a town of artists. Jamestown has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Jamestown’s character.

Also of interest is that Jamestown has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.24% 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

Because of many things, Jamestown is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Jamestown a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Jamestown has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Jamestown’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

One of the nice things about Jamestown is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
