Lakewood is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Colorado. With a population of 149,643 people and 41 constituent neighborhoods, Lakewood is the fifth largest community in Colorado.
Housing costs in Lakewood are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Colorado.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Lakewood is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Lakewood is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Lakewood who work in office and administrative support (13.91%), sales jobs (12.37%) and management occupations (9.68%).
Also of interest is that Lakewood has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One thing noticeable about Lakewood, 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 Lakewood 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 Lakewood 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.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Lakewood is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the bus helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Lakewood area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
The citizens of Lakewood are very well educated compared to the average community in the nation: 35.98% of adults in Lakewood have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Lakewood in 2010 was $31,689, which is upper middle income relative to Colorado, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $126,756 for a family of four. However, Lakewood contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
The people who call Lakewood home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Lakewood residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Lakewood also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 22.36% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Lakewood include German, Irish, English, Italian, French and Swedish.
