Dunbar is a tiny town located in the state of Wisconsin. With a population of 39 people and just one neighborhood, Dunbar is the 487th largest community in Wisconsin.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Dunbar isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Dunbar are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Dunbar is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Dunbar who work in food service (27.27%), sales jobs (21.21%) and office and administrative support (6.06%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 18.18% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 Dunbar is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Dunbar’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe place to live.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Dunbar is worth considering.
In Dunbar, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 40.83 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
Dunbar is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
