Garden City Profile


Overview

Garden City is a tiny town located in the state of Utah. With a population of 602 people and just one neighborhood, Garden City is the 141st largest community in Utah.

Occupations and Workforce

Garden City is a blue-collar town, with 53.09% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Garden City is a town of production and manufacturing workers, sales and office workers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Garden City who work in office and administrative support (14.81%), sales jobs (12.96%), and maintenance occupations (9.88%).

Also of interest is that Garden City has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

A relatively large number of people in Garden City telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 15.43% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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 Garden City is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Garden City’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 9.80 minutes getting to work every day.

Garden City is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Garden City, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 97.81% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

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

Garden City Demographics

The citizens of Garden City are slightly less educated than the national average of 21.84% for the average city or town: 15.10% of adults in Garden City have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree

The per capita income in Garden City in 2018 was $22,370, which is low income relative to Utah, and lower middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $89,480 for a family of four. However, Garden City contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
