Manhattan is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Kansas. With a population of 56,078 people and 13 constituent neighborhoods, Manhattan is the eighth largest community in Kansas.
Manhattan real estate is some of the most expensive in Kansas, although Manhattan house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Manhattan is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Manhattan is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Manhattan who work in teaching (14.70%), office and administrative support (11.78%) and sales jobs (10.31%).
There are many members of the armed forces living in Manhattan. You will notice when you visit or live here that some of the people you meet or see around town are employed by the armed services - even if they are not always in uniform.
Also of interest is that Manhattan has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Manhattan is also a major college town with a large number of people who are 18 years or older and attending college. As is often the case in college towns, the many students that live in Manhattan have a strong influence on the local culture and entertainment scene, which may seem dormant by comparison in the summer months when much of the student population is away. In the fall, the return of students has a reinvigorating effect on the community. Because colleges are lasting institutions, they have a stabilizing effect on the economy by providing direct local benefits such as jobs for faculty and staff and spending by students. Manhattan’s economy is one such example of this.
Not only is Manhattan 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 Manhattan 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 Manhattan 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.
One of the benefits of Manhattan is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 16.73 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
If knowledge is power, Manhattan is a pretty powerful place. 51.72% of the adults in Manhattan have earned a 4-year college degree, masters degree, MD, law degree, or even PhD. Compare that to the national average of 21.84% for all cities and towns.
The per capita income in Manhattan in 2010 was $24,323, which is upper middle income relative to Kansas, and middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $97,292 for a family of four. However, Manhattan contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Manhattan is a somewhat ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Manhattan home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Manhattan residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Manhattan include German, Irish, English, Swedish, French and Polish.
The most common language spoken in Manhattan is English. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish and Chinese.
