Emeryville is a somewhat small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 10,309 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Emeryville is the 416th largest community in California.
Housing costs in Emeryville are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Emeryville is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 94.35% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.40% 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.
For a small city, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in Emeryville. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to Emeryville.
One of the nice things about Emeryville is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
