Norwood Profile


Overview

Norwood is a somewhat small borough located in the state of New Jersey. With a population of 5,869 people and just one neighborhood, Norwood is the 301st largest community in New Jersey.

Norwood home prices are not only among the most expensive in New Jersey, but Norwood real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.

Occupations and Workforce

Norwood is a decidedly white-collar borough, with fully 88.14% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Norwood is a borough of sales and office workers, managers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Norwood who work in sales jobs (15.73%), management occupations (14.25%), and office and administrative support (12.62%).

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


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Norwood 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.

Because of many things, Norwood is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Norwood really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Norwood perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

One downside of living in Norwood is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Norwood, the average commute to work is 34.61 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the borough, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.

In Norwood, a lot of people use the bus to get to work every day though Norwood is a relatively small borough. Those that ride the bus are primarily traveling out of town to good jobs in other cities.

The per capita income in Norwood in 2010 was $48,254, which is upper middle income relative to New Jersey, and wealthy relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $193,016 for a family of four.
