Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Richmond is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Richmond who work in office and administrative support (12.87%), sales jobs (10.57%) and management occupations (9.69%).

Combining city textures and college town sensibilities, Richmond really has a nice blend of characteristics. While not a huge city, Richmond is big enough to offer a healthy dose of diversion, opportunity, and amenity to its residents and to the thousands of college students who descend on it every fall. Its size and diversity makes Richmond more than just a college town, but removing the students from the equation would undeniably change Richmond’s character and quality of life.
Not only is Richmond a city with many college students, but it also retains many recent graduates who are looking to start new careers, creating a very large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile. That’s because Richmond 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 Richmond 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.
Many people in Richmond take advantage of public transportation to get around. In fact, for the size of the city, the number of people who use the bus to commute to work is quite high. This helps to fill a need among Richmond citizens for affordable transportation.
The population of Richmond is very well educated relative to most cities and towns in the nation, where the average community has 21.84% of its adult population holding a 4-year degree or higher: 35.38% of adults in Richmond have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Richmond in 2010 was $27,860, which is upper middle income relative to Virginia and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $111,440 for a family of four. However, Richmond contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Richmond is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Richmond home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Richmond residents report their race to be Black or African-American, followed by White. Important ancestries of people in Richmond include English, German, Irish, Italian and Scottish.
