Heath is a somewhat small city located in the state of Texas. With a population of 7,999 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Heath is the 284th largest community in Texas.
Heath home prices are not only among the most expensive in Texas, but Heath real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Heath is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 94.70% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Heath is a city of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Heath who work in management occupations (25.98%), sales jobs (14.84%) and teaching (11.51%).
Also of interest is that Heath has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Of important note, Heath is also a city of artists. Heath has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Heath’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.34% 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.
Because of many things, Heath 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, Heath really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Heath 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 Heath is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Heath, the average commute to work is 31.50 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
As is often the case in a small city, Heath doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
