The U.S. Census Bureau estimates the workforce of Culpeper County, VA to be just under 25,000 people — and growing. The reality is the available pool of workers is much, much larger.
Universities and Community Colleges
The Commonwealth of Virginia is home to many exceptional colleges and universities, several of which are in close proximity to Culpeper. As you can see in the map below, there are 12 community colleges and four universities within a 60 mile radius of our community—and that doesn’t include any of the prestigious institutions in Washington, D.C.
Even though Culpeper is a hub of economic activity in the region, approximately half of its workforce commutes outside of the county for work. That represents a huge potential workforce for a quality employer moving to or expanding in the area. Think about it. With all things being equal, who wouldn’t want a shorter drive to and from work?
