Occupations and Workforce

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.11% 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
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!) Fair Haven 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. Fair Haven has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Fair Haven than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Fair Haven may be for you.
Being a small town, Fair Haven does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
