Most Expensive Columbia Neighborhoods
Columbia is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Missouri. With a population of 116,906 people and 24 constituent neighborhoods, Columbia is the fifth largest community in Missouri.
Columbia real estate is some of the most expensive in Missouri, although Columbia house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.
Columbia is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 90.58% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Columbia is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Columbia who work in office and administrative support (13.05%), teaching (12.04%) and sales jobs (11.73%).
Also of interest is that Columbia has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Columbia is made interesting by being both a reasonably big city and having a major college student population: students here will find that the city provides a lot of amenities, culture, and opportunities for them. Columbia is more than just a college town, however, though the thousands of students certainly are a major part of the character of the city, as well as a contributor to the local economy.
Not only is Columbia 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 Columbia 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 Columbia 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 Columbia is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.31 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.
Do you have a 4-year college degree or graduate degree? If so, you may feel right at home in Columbia. 55.89% of adults here have a 4-year degree or graduate degree, whereas the national average for all cities and towns is just 21.84%.
The per capita income in Columbia in 2010 was $26,203, which is wealthy relative to Missouri, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $104,812 for a family of four. However, Columbia contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Columbia is a very ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Columbia home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Columbia residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Important ancestries of people in Columbia include German, Irish, English, Italian, French and Scottish.
The most common language spoken in Columbia is English. Some people also speak Chinese.
