Shipman Profile


Overview

Shipman is a tiny town located in the state of Virginia. With a population of 501 people and just one neighborhood, Shipman is the 305th largest community in Virginia. Shipman has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Shipman, where the median household income is $30,000.00.

Occupations and Workforce

Shipman is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 95.65% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Shipman is a town of service providers, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Shipman who work in personal care services (32.07%), the sciences (17.93%), and teaching (15.22%).

And if you like science, one thing you'll find is that Shipman has lots of scientists living in town - whether they be life scientists, physical scientists (like astronomers), or social scientists (like geographers!). So, if you're scientific-minded, you might like it here too.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 32.07% 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

Shipman is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Shipman 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. 1.00% 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.

Shipman 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.

However, Shipman contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Shipman also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 38.11% of its population below the federal poverty line.
