Flagstaff 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 Flagstaff 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. Flagstaff’s economy is one such example of this.
Not only is Flagstaff 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 Flagstaff 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 Flagstaff 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.
One of the benefits of Flagstaff is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 16.45 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Flagstaff is one of the most well-educated cities in the nation. 42.84% of adults in Flagstaff have at least a bachelor's degree. Compare that to the average community in America, which has just 21.84% with a bachelor's degree or higher.
The per capita income in Flagstaff in 2010 was $24,702, which is upper middle income relative to Arizona, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $98,808 for a family of four. However, Flagstaff contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Flagstaff is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Flagstaff home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups.
