Alta Profile


Overview

Alta is a tiny town located in the state of Utah. With a population of 390 people and just one neighborhood, Alta is the 143rd largest community in Utah.

Alta home prices are not only among the most expensive in Utah, but Alta real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Alta is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Alta is a town of service providers, professionals, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Alta who work in personal care services (17.09%), healthcare (11.11%), and maintenance occupations (8.55%).

Of important note, Alta is also a town of artists. Alta has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Alta’s character.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 15.45% 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

Another notable thing is that Alta is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.

The overall crime rate in Alta 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.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Alta spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 16.21 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

Even though Alta is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly taxis for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.

Alta Demographics

The education level of Alta citizens is very high relative to the national average among all cities (21.84%): 36.80% of adults in Alta have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.

The per capita income in Alta in 2010 was $31,210, which is wealthy relative to Utah, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $124,840 for a family of four. However, Alta contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Alta also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 60.82% of its population below the federal poverty line.
