Spur is a very small city located in the state of Texas. With a population of 1,211 people and just one neighborhood, Spur is the 745th largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Spur is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Spur is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Spur who work in office and administrative support (25.21%), sales jobs (9.17%) and teaching (8.88%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.79% of the workforce. 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
Residents will find that the city 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, Spur is worth considering.
Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Spur spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 18.21 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.
Spur 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.
