Freeland is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 2,068 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Freeland is the 189th largest community in Washington.
Freeland home prices are not only among the most expensive in Washington, but Freeland real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
Freeland is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 85.34% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Freeland is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Freeland who work in computer science and math (16.82%), management occupations (16.51%) and sales jobs (11.73%).
Also of interest is that Freeland has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.54% 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.
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, Freeland has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Freeland a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
Freeland is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
Even though Freeland is a smaller town, it has many people who hop on public transportation – mostly taxis for their daily commute to work. Typically, these people are commuting to good jobs in the surrounding cities.
The overall education level of Freeland citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 30.09% of adults in Freeland have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
The per capita income in Freeland in 2010 was $30,044, which is upper middle income relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $120,176 for a family of four. However, Freeland contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
