Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Dunnsville isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Dunnsville are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dunnsville is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders.

Of important note, Dunnsville is also a town of artists. Dunnsville has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Dunnsville’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.17% 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
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Dunnsville is worth considering.
One downside of living in Dunnsville, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 31.95 minutes every day commuting to work.
As is often the case in a small town, Dunnsville doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
