Centennial Profile


Overview

Centennial is a tiny town located in the state of Wyoming. With a population of 283 people and just one neighborhood, Centennial is the 61st largest community in Wyoming.

Centennial home prices are not only among the most expensive in Wyoming, but Centennial real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Centennial is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.47% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Centennial is a town of professionals, managers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Centennial who work in sales jobs (18.60%), management occupations (17.05%), and architecture and engineering (13.95%).

Also of interest is that Centennial 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: 24.58% 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

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

Because of many things, Centennial is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Centennial really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Centennial perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly 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, Centennial is worth considering.

Centennial 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.

Centennial Demographics

Do you have a 4-year college degree or graduate degree? If so, you may feel right at home in Centennial. 68.29% of adults here have a 4-year degree or graduate degree, whereas the national average for all cities and towns is just 21.84%.

The per capita income in Centennial in 2018 was $41,196, which is wealthy relative to Wyoming and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $164,784 for a family of four. However, Centennial contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
