Hollywood is a relatively large coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 152,131 people and 35 constituent neighborhoods, Hollywood is the 12th largest community in Florida.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.27% 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.
Hollywood is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Hollywood, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.44 minutes every day commuting to work.
In terms of college education, Hollywood is substantially better educated than the typical community in the nation, which has 21.84% of the adults holding a bachelor's degree or graduate degree: 29.87% of adults in Hollywood have a college degree.
The per capita income in Hollywood in 2018 was $33,207, which is middle income relative to Florida, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $132,828 for a family of four. However, Hollywood contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
