Berlin is a medium-sized town located in the state of Connecticut. With a population of 20,113 people and four constituent neighborhoods, Berlin is the 56th largest community in Connecticut.
Also of interest is that Berlin has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.33% 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. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Berlin is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Berlin’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
The education level of Berlin ranks among the highest in the nation. Of the 25-and-older adult population in Berlin, 44.09% 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 Berlin in 2018 was $52,493, which is middle income relative to Connecticut, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $209,972 for a family of four.
