Fort Meade is a somewhat small town located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 9,738 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Fort Meade is the 84th largest community in Maryland. Fort Meade 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.

30.48% of the workforce is employed in the armed forces, making the military a huge focus of life in Fort Meade.
