Soap Lake Profile


Overview

Soap Lake is a very small city located in the state of Washington. With a population of 1,580 people and just one neighborhood, Soap Lake is the 210th largest community in Washington.

Occupations and Workforce

Soap Lake is a blue-collar town, with 37.55% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Soap Lake is a city of sales and office workers, service providers, and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Soap Lake who work in sales jobs (16.06%), personal care services (12.25%), and office and administrative support (8.43%).

In addition, many people in Soap Lake have jobs in agriculture, more so than in most other communities in America. As a result, you will see quite a number of farms around town.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.42% 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.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Despite the fact that it is a small city, Soap Lake has quite a few people who take public transportation – mostly the bus - for their daily commute to work. This helps to fill a real need in the city for affordable transportation.
