Living in Pasadena

Pasadena is a medium-sized coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 32,979 people and 14 constituent neighborhoods, Pasadena is the 35th largest community in Maryland.

Also of interest is that Pasadena has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 15.06% 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.

One of the nice things about Pasadena is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.

One downside of living in Pasadena, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.20 minutes every day commuting to work.

The overall education level of Pasadena citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 32.72% of adults in Pasadena have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.

The per capita income in Pasadena in 2018 was $48,198, which is upper middle income relative to Maryland, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $192,792 for a family of four.
