Jobs in Abilene, Texas, United States

Abilene is a city located in the US state of Texas. It lies in the counties of Taylor and Jones and has a population of around 117,000 inhabitants, making it the 27th most populous city in the state.

Base Town

The city is supported to some extent by the nearby Dyess Air Force base, the largest employer in town (see below).

The city is also home to a number of higher education colleges, meaning it does not have the kind of base culture typically associated with cities close to large scale military bases.

The city has a generally suburban feel, with good transport infrastructure – it is generally fairly easy and pain fee to drive form one part of the city to another.

There are good shopping facilities – both in terms of large malls, and an attractive and historic downtown.

Abilene is home to a number of artistic endeavors – several excellent theatres, a local orchestra, several art galleries, a zoo, 6 libraries and 26 parks and other outdoor recreational facilities.

It’s a pleasant place to live – if a little dull. 

Key Facts:

·         Median Age: 31.1

·         Median Household Income: $43,189

·         Median Property Value: $97,300

·         Poverty Rate: 19.1%

·         Cost of Living:  6% lower than state average, 16% lower than national average

·         Unemployment Rate: 3.5%

·         Crime Rate: 39% higher than national average

Education & Military Industry

 As mentioned above, the air force base is the largest single employer, with around 5,400 civilians from the city being employed there.

The city is also something of a hub of higher education with no less than 7 college campuses being housed within the city limits.

Education provides for around 12% of all jobs in town, with healthcare (at 17%) the largest employing sector – mainly between two large medical facilities and associated support services.

Accommodation and Food is a big employer, with around 10% of all jobs – many providing services to students and servicemen alike.

Manufacturing and construction both only provide about 5% of total jobs, showing how entrenched in education and service the local economy is.
