Carnation Profile


Overview

Carnation is a very small city located in the state of Washington. With a population of 2,164 people and just one neighborhood, Carnation is the 196th largest community in Washington.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Carnation is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 85.52% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Carnation is a city of professionals, sales and office workers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Carnation who work in office and administrative support (16.07%), management occupations (13.64%), and computer science and math (8.25%).

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

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.25% 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

Because of many things, Carnation 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, Carnation really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Carnation 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.

One downside of living in Carnation is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Carnation, the average commute to work is 34.67 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

In terms of college education, Carnation is substantially better educated than the typical community in the nation, which has 21.84% of the adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree: 33.97% of adults in Carnation have a college degree.

The per capita income in Carnation in 2010 was $34,725, which is upper middle income relative to Washington, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $138,900 for a family of four. However, Carnation contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
