Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Wadmalaw Island is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Wadmalaw Island is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wadmalaw Island who work in office and administrative support (13.19%), sales jobs (9.22%), and healthcare suport services (8.33%).

Also of interest is that Wadmalaw Island 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: 8.01% 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 town 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!) Wadmalaw Island 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. Wadmalaw Island has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Wadmalaw Island than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Wadmalaw Island may be for you.
