Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Ivins is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Ivins is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Ivins who work in office and administrative support (14.10%), sales jobs (11.80%) and teaching (8.08%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.01% 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
Ivins is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The city’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Ivins’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Being a small city, Ivins does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
