St. Paul is a very small town located in the state of Texas. With a population of 1,125 people and just one neighborhood, St. Paul is the 797th largest community in Texas. St. Paul 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 St. Paul, where the median household income is $89,900.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.62% of the workforce.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
