Dorset Profile


Overview

Dorset is a very small town located in the state of Vermont. With a population of 1,987 people and just one neighborhood, Dorset is the 76th largest community in Vermont.

Dorset home prices are not only among the most expensive in Vermont, but Dorset real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Dorset is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.66% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Dorset is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Dorset who work in sales jobs (18.46%), management occupations (16.65%), and office and administrative support (10.79%).

Of important note, Dorset is also a town of artists. Dorset has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Dorset’s character.

A relatively large number of people in Dorset telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.66% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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

Another notable thing is that Dorset is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.

Because of many things, Dorset is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Dorset a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Dorset has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Dorset’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

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, Dorset is worth considering.

Dorset 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.

Dorset Demographics

The citizens of Dorset are among the most well-educated in the nation: 48.45% of adults in Dorset have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Dorset in 2010 was $38,084, which is wealthy relative to Vermont and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $152,336 for a family of four. However, Dorset contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Dorset home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Dorset residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Dorset include English, German, Italian, and Scottish.

The most common language spoken in Dorset is English. Other important languages spoken here include French and Spanish.
