Selawik - Noorvik Profile


Overview

Selawik - Noorvik is a very small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Alaska. With a population of 4,691 people and just one neighborhood, Selawik - Noorvik is the 15th largest community in Alaska.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some towns, Selawik - Noorvik isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Selawik - Noorvik are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Selawik - Noorvik is a town of professionals, service providers, and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Selawik - Noorvik who work in teaching (18.62%), maintenance occupations (8.22%), and management occupations (8.22%).

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.79% 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 Selawik - Noorvik 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.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Selawik - Noorvik has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Selawik - Noorvik a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Selawik - Noorvik is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

One of the benefits of Selawik - Noorvik is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 8.30 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.
