Henefer is a tiny town located in the state of Utah. With a population of 834 people and just one neighborhood, Henefer is the 135th largest community in Utah.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Henefer is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Henefer is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Henefer who work in office and administrative support (16.07%), sales jobs (11.79%) and management occupations (8.93%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.39% 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.
