Brandon is a very small town located in the state of Vermont. With a population of 3,860 people and just one neighborhood, Brandon is the 36th largest community in Vermont.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Brandon is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Brandon is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Brandon who work in office and administrative support (18.31%), sales jobs (7.60%) and teaching (6.32%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.26% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Brandon has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Brandon a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Being a small town, Brandon does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
