Huxley is a tiny city located in the state of Texas. With a population of 375 people and just one neighborhood, Huxley is the 977th largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Huxley is a blue-collar town, with 40.63% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Huxley is a city of construction workers and builders, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Huxley who work in office and administrative support (13.54%), sales jobs (11.46%) and management occupations (6.25%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.37% 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
Another notable thing is that Huxley is a major vacation destination. Much of the city’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Huxley’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
Huxley’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Huxley 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. Huxley has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Huxley than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Huxley may be for you.
In Huxley, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 41.65 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
Being a small city, Huxley does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
