Cope is a tiny town located in the state of South Carolina. With a population of 76 people and just one neighborhood, Cope is the 270th largest community in South Carolina.
Occupations and Workforce
Cope is a blue-collar town, with 43.90% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Cope is a town of managers, construction workers and builders and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cope who work in management occupations (43.90%), community and social services (7.32%) and food service (2.44%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.32% 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
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Cope is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Cope is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.95 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Cope is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Cope isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 97.37% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Cope is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
