There are especially a lot of people living in Tempe who work in office and administrative support (15.36%), sales jobs (12.41%) and management occupations (9.29%).

Combining city textures and college town sensibilities, Tempe really has a nice blend of characteristics. While not a huge city, Tempe 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 Tempe more than just a college town, but removing the students from the equation would undeniably change Tempe’s character and quality of life.
Not only is Tempe 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 Tempe 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 Tempe 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.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Tempe use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Tempe‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the bus. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
The education level of Tempe ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Tempe, 41.01% have at least a bachelor's degree. The typical US community has just 21.84% of its adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree.
The per capita income in Tempe in 2010 was $26,094, which is upper middle income relative to Arizona and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $104,376 for a family of four. However, Tempe contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Tempe is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Tempe home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Tempe residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Tempe also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 22.23% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Tempe include German, Irish, English, Italian, Polish and French.
