About Cocoa Beach
Cocoa Beach is a somewhat small coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 11,388 people and five constituent neighborhoods, Cocoa Beach is the 193rd largest community in Florida.
Cocoa Beach is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 88.72% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Cocoa Beach is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Cocoa Beach who work in management occupations (14.70%), sales jobs (12.55%) and office and administrative support (11.07%).
Also of interest is that Cocoa Beach has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.66% 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.
A large number of seniors call Cocoa Beach home: people 65 and over are 34.15% of the population. Because of the prominence of the retirement community, this is good place for the over-65 crowd to settle, as many of the city’s services and social community are geared to this demographic.
The city is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Cocoa Beach has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Cocoa Beach a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
One of the nice things about Cocoa Beach 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.
The education level of Cocoa Beach ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Cocoa Beach, 40.08% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.
The per capita income in Cocoa Beach in 2010 was $37,585, which is wealthy relative to Florida and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $150,340 for a family of four. However, Cocoa Beach contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
The people who call Cocoa Beach home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Cocoa Beach residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Important ancestries of people in Cocoa Beach include German, Irish, English, Italian, French and Polish.
