Rock River Profile


Overview

Rock River is a tiny town located in the state of Wyoming. With a population of 244 people and just one neighborhood, Rock River is the 52nd largest community in Wyoming. Rock River has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns in the country.

Rock River real estate is some of the most expensive in Wyoming, although Rock River house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Rock River is a blue-collar town, with 37.29% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Rock River is a town of construction workers and builders, professionals, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Rock River who work in teaching (20.34%), sales jobs (9.32%), and management occupations (9.32%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.63% 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

Rock River 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 town’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, Rock River’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

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

Rock River 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.
