Delton Profile


Overview

Delton is a tiny town located in the state of Michigan. With a population of 878 people and just one neighborhood, Delton is the 491st largest community in Michigan. Delton has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns.

Occupations and Workforce

Delton is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 89.97% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Delton is a town of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Delton who work in healthcare (29.82%), office and administrative support (20.30%), and sales jobs (18.30%).

Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Delton 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.

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

One downside of living in Delton is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Delton, the average commute to work is 35.92 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

Delton is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Delton 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, Delton doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

Delton Demographics

The population of Delton overall has a level of education that is slightly above the US average for all US cities and towns of 21.84%. Of adults 25 and older in Delton, 23.91% have at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Delton in 2018 was $42,906, which is wealthy relative to Michigan and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $171,624 for a family of four. However, Delton contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
