I don't, because most of my community is about vacation properties. But, with the influx of so many moving to Portland OR, about 90 mins away, some have decided to move out here, and if they can work remotely, they can live in a quieter lake community without the onslaught of noise and traffic that's increased in the urban areas of Portland.

I don't really follow that info.  It isn't accurately recorded (unemployed over six months and you fall off the report).  It also fails to consider under employment (a Ph.D. or M.D. flipping burgers for example).  It considers that fully employed, even if they are not employed to their potential.

I will check it out Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041 . Jobs are a huge factor here in NH as manufacturing jobs have been sent over seas and as industrial areas lay empty, financial and computer based companies bring in workers from all of the country to NH in mass.
