Oakville is a tiny city located in the state of Washington. With a population of 663 people and just one neighborhood, Oakville is the 256th largest community in Washington.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Oakville is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Oakville is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Oakville who work in sales jobs (23.08%), office and administrative support (12.82%) and law enforcement and fire fighting (10.26%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.85% 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
Being a small city, Oakville does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
