Lopez Island Profile


Overview

Lopez Island 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 2,891 people and just one neighborhood, Lopez Island is the 167th largest community in Washington.

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

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Lopez Island isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Lopez Island are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lopez Island is a town of professionals, managers, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lopez Island who work in management occupations (16.80%), sales jobs (7.96%), and office and administrative support (7.32%).

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

A relatively large number of people in Lopez Island telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 14.95% 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 Lopez Island is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Lopez Island’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.

Lopez Island is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Lopez Island’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

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, Lopez Island has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Lopez Island a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Lopez Island 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. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Lopez Island spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 18.99 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the town are less than they would otherwise be.

In Lopez Island, a lot of people use a ferryboat to get to work every day though Lopez Island is a relatively small town. Those that ride a ferryboat are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.

Lopez Island Demographics

If knowledge is power, Lopez Island is a pretty powerful place. 52.37% of the adults in Lopez Island have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.

The per capita income in Lopez Island in 2010 was $40,501, which is wealthy relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $162,004 for a family of four. However, Lopez Island contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

Lopez Island is a somewhat ethnically-diverse town. The people who call Lopez Island home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Lopez Island residents report their race to be White, followed by Native American. Important ancestries of people in Lopez Island include German, English, Irish, Scottish, and Norwegian.

The most common language spoken in Lopez Island is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and German/Yiddish.
