Goldsmith is a tiny city located in the state of Texas. With a population of 272 people and just one neighborhood, Goldsmith is the 1011th largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Goldsmith is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 52.54% of the Goldsmith workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Goldsmith is a city of construction workers and builders, transportation and shipping workers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Goldsmith who work in food service (11.02%), sales jobs (9.32%) and office and administrative support (8.47%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 10.17% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 city 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, Goldsmith is worth considering.
As is often the case in a small city, Goldsmith doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
