Sarita Profile


Overview

Sarita is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Texas. With a population of 229 people and just one neighborhood, Sarita is the 1013th largest community in Texas.

Sarita real estate is some of the most expensive in Texas, although Sarita house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Sarita isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Sarita are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sarita is a town of farmers, fishers, or foresters, service providers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sarita who work in farm management occupations (29.01%), office and administrative support (16.05%), and maintenance occupations (16.05%).


Setting & Lifestyle

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Sarita has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Sarita a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Sarita is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Sarita spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 18.98 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Sarita is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Sarita isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 1.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

Being a small town, Sarita does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

In terms of college education, Sarita ranks among the least educated cities in the nation, as only 5.78% of people over 25 have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Sarita in 2010 was $12,771, which is low income relative to Texas and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $51,084 for a family of four.

The people who call Sarita home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Sarita residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Sarita also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 81.00% of the town’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Sarita include German, French , English, and Yugoslavian.

Foreign born people are also an important part of Sarita's cultural character, accounting for 22.17% of the town’s population.
