Arizona City is a somewhat small town located in the state of Arizona. With a population of 11,354 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Arizona City is the 50th largest community in Arizona. Arizona City has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Arizona City, where the median household income is $46,578.00.

There are especially a lot of people living in Arizona City who work in office and administrative support (14.14%), management occupations (11.98%), and food service (9.16%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.17% 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.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Being a small town, Arizona City does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
