New Bern, NC Employment Information

New Bern, North Carolina Overview

As the second-oldest colonial settlement in North Carolina, New Bern is a popular tourist destination that was once referred to as the "Athens of the South." The small town has four historic districts and over 160 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

Many people see New Bern as an excellent opportunity for business and residential growth. New Bern covers 27 square miles, but much of it is undeveloped. New development could create more New Bern, NC jobs, but the town needs to plan carefully so it doesn't detract from its historic charm.

New Bern has a 93 cost of living index that makes it about 5 percent cheaper than the state average (98) and 7 percent cheaper than the national average (100). Several indices actually exceed the national averages. The city's utilities index, for instance, is 19 percent higher than the nation's average. Health care, transportation, and groceries are also more expensive.

Much of this is offset by New Bern's low real estate cost. The town has a housing index of 61, which makes it 25 percent cheaper than the state average (86) and 39 percent cheaper than the national average (100).

In April 2014, the rate fell to 5.9 percent, the lowest it had been since the recession.

New Bern has a small population of about 30,000 people, but it's expected to grow by 24 percent between 2014 and 2024. This could make it harder to find jobs in New Bern.
