Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Stamford is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Stamford is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Stamford who work in office and administrative support (11.83%), sales jobs (10.67%) and management occupations (10.53%).

Another interesting thing about Stamford, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals. This makes it a good choice for other relocating single professionals. Here, these young singles will find many others like themselves, with opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
Stamford is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Stamford is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation.
