Oak Ridge Profile


Overview

Oak Ridge is a tiny town located in the state of Texas. With a population of 742 people and just one neighborhood, Oak Ridge is the 948th largest community in Texas. Oak Ridge has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Oak Ridge, where the median household income is $86,250.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Oak Ridge is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Oak Ridge is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Oak Ridge who work in office and administrative support (20.39%), management occupations (10.86%), and sales jobs (10.53%).

Also of interest is that Oak Ridge has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.64% 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

Because of many things, Oak Ridge is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Oak Ridge a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Oak Ridge has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Oak Ridge’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

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!) Oak Ridge 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. Oak Ridge has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Oak Ridge than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Oak Ridge may be for you.

In Oak Ridge, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 35.17 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

As is often the case in a small town, Oak Ridge doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
