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 2,837 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, service providers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lopez Island who work in management occupations (14.94%), office and administrative support (8.80%), and sales jobs (8.56%).

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

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.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.26% 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

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.

Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Lopez Island is worth considering.

One of the nice things about Lopez Island is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

Residents of the town have the good fortune of having one of the shortest daily commutes compared to the rest of the country. On average, they spend only 17.82 minutes getting to work every day.

Despite being a small town, Lopez Island has a lot of people using taxis to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on taxis are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.

Lopez Island Demographics

Lopez Island is one of the most well-educated cities in the nation. 48.82% of adults in Lopez Island have at least a bachelor's degree. Compare that to the average community in America, which has just 21.84% with a bachelor's degree or higher.

The per capita income in Lopez Island in 2010 was $35,506, which is wealthy relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $142,024 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 Asian. Important ancestries of people in Lopez Island include English, Irish, Norwegian, and Scottish.

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