Dedham is a medium-sized town located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 25,473 people and six constituent neighborhoods, Dedham is the 75th largest community in Massachusetts.

Dedham is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 87.04% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

There are especially a lot of people living in Dedham who work in management occupations (14.09%), office and administrative support (11.61%) and sales jobs (10.01%).
Also of interest is that Dedham has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
In addition, Dedham is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are educated, wealthy, executives and professionals, who have urbane tastes in books, food, and travel, whether they actually live in a big city, or choose to reside in a small town. In big or medium-sized cities, urban sophisticates tend to frequent art institutions such as opera, symphonies, ballet, live theatre, and museums.
One downside of living in Dedham, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.89 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Dedham use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Dedham‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the train. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.

The per capita income in Dedham in 2010 was $44,241, which is upper middle income relative to Massachusetts, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $176,964 for a family of four.
