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.
Setting & Lifestyle
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!) Point 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. Point has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Point than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Point may be for you.
Point is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
