Valentine is a tiny town located in the state of Texas. With a population of 126 people and just one neighborhood, Valentine is the 1029th largest community in Texas.
Occupations and Workforce
Valentine is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Valentine is a town of service providers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Valentine who work in teaching (23.33%), farm management occupations (18.33%) and business and financial occupations (15.00%).
Another important characteristic of Valentine is that a lot of people work in agricultural jobs, especially compared to most other communities in America, and there are quite a number of farms in town.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.91% 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
The overall crime rate in Valentine is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.
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, Valentine is worth considering.
As is often the case in a small town, Valentine doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
