Charles City is a tiny town located in the state of Virginia. With a population of 129 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Charles City is the 361st largest community in Virginia.
Charles City is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 100.00% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Charles City is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Charles City who work in sales jobs (43.33%), teaching (16.67%) and healthcare (11.67%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.67% 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.
Charles City’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Charles City has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Charles City has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Charles City than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Charles City may be for you.
One downside of living in Charles City, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.82 minutes every day commuting to work.
Charles City is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Charles City isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Charles City is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
The percentage of people in Charles City with college degrees is quite a bit lower than the national average for cities and towns of 21.84%: just 12.82% of people over 25 have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.
The per capita income in Charles City in 2010 was $82,346, which is wealthy relative to Virginia and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $329,384 for a family of four. However, Charles City contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
