With a population of 6,391 people and just one neighborhood, Waveland is the 58th largest community in Mississippi. Much of the housing stock in Waveland was built relatively recently. The construction of new real estate can often be taken as an indication that the local Waveland economy is robust, and that jobs or other amenities are attracting an influx of new residents.

One of the nice things about Waveland 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.
