Balsam Lake Profile


Overview

Balsam Lake is a very small village located in the state of Wisconsin. With a population of 991 people and just one neighborhood, Balsam Lake is the 350th largest community in Wisconsin.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Balsam Lake is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Balsam Lake is a village of sales and office workers, managers, and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Balsam Lake who work in sales jobs (16.61%), office and administrative support (14.33%), and management occupations (10.10%).


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Balsam Lake is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the village 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 village.

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

Being a small village, Balsam Lake does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
