Vineyard is a somewhat small town located in the state of Utah. With a population of 12,543 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Vineyard is the 55th largest community in Utah. Much of the housing stock in Vineyard was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Vineyard economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents. This seems to be the case in Vineyard, where the median household income is $80,868.00.
Vineyard home prices are not only among the most expensive in Utah, but Vineyard real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Vineyard is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Vineyard is a town of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Vineyard who work in office and administrative support (13.39%), management occupations (12.22%), and computer science and math (10.88%).
Also of interest is that Vineyard has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.63% 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.
Vineyard, while not large, also appears to be attractive to some younger, educated professionals, who help shape the character of the town.
