Living in Barrington

Barrington is a somewhat small town located in the state of New Hampshire. With a population of 9,517 people and two associated neighborhoods, Barrington is the 32nd largest community in New Hampshire.

Also of interest is that Barrington has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.96% 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.

Because of many things, Barrington is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Barrington really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Barrington perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

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

The per capita income in Barrington in 2018 was $45,285, which is middle income relative to New Hampshire, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $181,140 for a family of four. However, Barrington contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
