Montgomery is a medium-sized village located in the state of Illinois. With a population of 19,301 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Montgomery is the 136th largest community in Illinois. Montgomery has seen a significant amount of newer housing growth in recent years. Quite often, new home construction is the result of new residents moving in who are middle class or wealthier, attracted by jobs, a healthy local economy, or other amenities as they leave nearby or far away areas for greener pastures. This seems to be the case in Montgomery, where the median household income is $76,207.
Unlike some villages where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Montgomery is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Montgomery is a village of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Montgomery who work in sales jobs (13.98%), office and administrative support (12.50%) and management occupations (9.19%).
Also of interest is that Montgomery has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Because of many things, Montgomery is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Montgomery a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Montgomery has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Montgomery’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
One downside of living in Montgomery is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Montgomery, the average commute to work is 32.22 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.
The overall education level of Montgomery is somewhat higher than in the average US city of 21.84%: 28.71% of adults 25 and older in the village have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Montgomery in 2010 was $26,106, which is upper middle income relative to Illinois and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $104,424 for a family of four. However, Montgomery contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
