Westport Profile


Overview

Westport is a very small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Washington. With a population of 2,023 people and just one neighborhood, Westport is the 185th largest community in Washington.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities, Westport isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Westport are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Westport is a city of service providers, transportation and shipping workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Westport who work in management occupations (12.11%), personal care services (11.67%), and office and administrative support (8.86%).

A relatively large number of people in Westport telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 9.38% 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 Westport is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the city experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller city.

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Westport has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Westport has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Westport than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Westport may be for you.

One of the nice things about Westport 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.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Westport spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 14.20 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the city are less than they would otherwise be.

Being a small city, Westport does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.

Westport Demographics

The percentage of adults in Westport with college degrees is slightly lower than the national average of 21.84% for all communities. 14.69% of adults in Westport have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree.

The per capita income in Westport in 2010 was $20,128, which is lower middle income relative to Washington and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $80,512 for a family of four.
