Kohler is a very small village located in the state of Wisconsin. With a population of 2,109 people and just one neighborhood, Kohler is the 251st largest community in Wisconsin. Kohler has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic villages in the country.
Occupations and Workforce
Kohler is a decidedly white-collar village, with fully 92.89% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Kohler is a village of managers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Kohler who work in management occupations (18.37%), business and financial occupations (11.45%) and office and administrative support (10.43%).
Also of interest is that Kohler has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.19% 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
In addition, Kohler is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.
Kohler is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Kohler’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
One of the benefits of Kohler is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 16.08 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
