Linden Profile


Overview

Linden is a tiny town located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 136 people and just one neighborhood, Linden is the 570th largest community in North Carolina.

Occupations and Workforce

Linden is a blue-collar town, with 38.78% of people working in blue-collar occupations, while the average in America is just 27.7%. Overall, Linden is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Linden who work in management occupations (14.29%), office and administrative support (10.20%), and sales jobs (10.20%).

Of important note, Linden is also a town of artists. Linden has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Linden’s character.

Setting & Lifestyle

Linden’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the nation, making it a very safe 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, Linden has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Linden a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

One downside of living in Linden is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Linden, the average commute to work is 34.17 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Linden is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Linden isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 100.00% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.

As is often the case in a small town, Linden doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

The population of Linden has a very low overall level of education: only 9.72% of people over 25 hold a 4-year college degree or higher.

The per capita income in Linden in 2018 was $27,709, which is upper middle income relative to North Carolina, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $110,836 for a family of four. However, Linden contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
