Centertown is a tiny town located in the state of Tennessee. With a population of 244 people and just one neighborhood, Centertown is the 389th largest community in Tennessee.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Centertown is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Centertown is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Centertown who work in healthcare (16.96%), office and administrative support (13.39%) and business and financial occupations (6.25%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.41% 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, Centertown is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Centertown really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Centertown perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
One downside of living in Centertown, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.90 minutes every day commuting to work.
Being a small town, Centertown does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
