Greenville is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 86,869 people and 22 constituent neighborhoods, Greenville is the tenth largest community in North Carolina.

Overall, Greenville is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Greenville who work in office and administrative support (13.69%), sales jobs (11.15%) and teaching (9.93%).
Greenville is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Greenville have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Greenville’s economy is one such example of this.
Not only is Greenville a city with many college students, but it also retains many recent graduates who are looking to start new careers, creating a decent-sized population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile. 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.

The per capita income in Greenville in 2010 was $22,370, which is upper middle income relative to North Carolina, and middle income relative to the rest of the US.
