Salem is a relatively large city located in the state of Oregon. With a population of 157,353 people and 38 constituent neighborhoods, Salem is the third largest community in Oregon.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Salem is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Salem is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Salem who work in office and administrative support (16.04%), sales jobs (9.40%) and management occupations (8.61%).
Also of interest is that Salem has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One thing noticeable about Salem, although not a huge city, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Salem is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Salem a pretty good place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun.
The percentage of people in Salem who are college-educated is somewhat higher than the average US community of 21.84%: 25.97% of adults in Salem have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Salem in 2010 was $23,372, which is upper middle income relative to Oregon, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $93,488 for a family of four. However, Salem contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.

The greatest number of Salem residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Salem also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 20.28% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Salem include German, English, Irish, Norwegian and European.
