Norman profile


Living in Norman



Norman is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Oklahoma. With a population of 129,627 people and 34 associated neighborhoods, Norman is the third largest community in Oklahoma.

Norman real estate is some of the most expensive in Oklahoma, although Norman house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Also of interest is that Norman 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: 9.34% 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.

Combining city textures and college town sensibilities, Norman really has a nice blend of characteristics. While not a huge city, Norman is big enough to offer a healthy dose of diversion, opportunity, and amenity to its residents and to the thousands of college students who descend on it every fall.

Not only is Norman a city with many college students, but it also retains many recent graduates who are looking to start new careers, shaping the character of the city into a place that is geared toward, and considered attractive to, many single, educated people.

The citizens of Norman are among the most well-educated in the nation: 45.60% of adults in Norman have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.

The per capita income in Norman in 2018 was $35,650, which is wealthy relative to Oklahoma, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $142,600 for a family of four. However, Norman contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
