Sweet Home doesn’t sound too sweet when you add up the numbers. This town in the middle of nowhere (north of Eugene) has a low household income and a long commute time, meaning even less time with the family. That is for folks who have a job — residents here have a 16.4% unemployment rate.
Additionally, 21.3% of the population lives below the poverty line.
