Athens Profile


Overview

Athens is a very small village located in the state of Wisconsin. With a population of 1,088 people and just one neighborhood, Athens is the 337th largest community in Wisconsin.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Athens is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 38.40% of the Athens workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Athens is a village of service providers, managers, and production and manufacturing workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Athens who work in management occupations (8.86%), teaching (8.44%), and office and administrative support (7.81%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.81% 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

Overall, Athens’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.

It is a fairly quiet village 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!) Athens 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. Athens has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Athens than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Athens may be for you.

As is often the case in a small village, Athens doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Athens Demographics

The citizens of Athens are slightly less educated than the national average of 21.84% for the average city or town: 16.74% of adults in Athens have a bachelor's degree or advanced degree

The per capita income in Athens in 2010 was $30,395, which is upper middle income relative to Wisconsin and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $121,580 for a family of four. However, Athens contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The people who call Athens home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Athens residents report their race to be White. Important ancestries of people in Athens include German, Polish, Irish, Norwegian, and French Canadian.

The most common language spoken in Athens is English. Other important languages spoken here include Polish and German/Yiddish.
