Dummerston Profile


Overview

Dummerston is a very small town located in the state of Vermont. With a population of 1,818 people and just one neighborhood, Dummerston is the 85th largest community in Vermont.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Dummerston is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dummerston is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Dummerston who work in management occupations (17.25%), office and administrative support (11.99%), and teaching (11.53%).

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

Also of interest is that Dummerston has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

A relatively large number of people in Dummerston telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 17.49% 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

In addition, Dummerston is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.

Because of many things, Dummerston is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Dummerston really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Dummerston perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly 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!) Dummerston 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. Dummerston has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Dummerston than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Dummerston may be for you.

Dummerston 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.
