Oakwood is a tiny town located in the state of Texas. With a population of 510 people and just one neighborhood, Oakwood is the 943rd largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Oakwood is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Oakwood is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Oakwood who work in office and administrative support (21.18%), management occupations (11.76%) and law enforcement and fire fighting (7.65%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 21.76% 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 town 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, Oakwood is worth considering.
Being a small town, Oakwood does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
