Houston is an enormous city located in the state of Texas. With a population of 2,235,209 people and 605 constituent neighborhoods, Houston is the largest community in Texas.
Unlike some cities, Houston isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Houston are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Houston is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Houston who work in office and administrative support (12.01%), sales jobs (10.17%) and management occupations (8.16%).
Also of interest is that Houston has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
One thing noticeable about Houston, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Houston 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 Houston a great place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun. In fact, Houston is one of the top larger cities in America for educated single professionals to flock.
One of the benefits of being a big city like Houston is having a public transportation system, but in Houston the transit system is the mode of choice for lots of people getting to and from work every day. You will find many people using the bus for their daily commute, even though other transportation options exist. If you ask these commuters, many will tell you that not having to drive in the snarl of big city traffic is one of main reasons for leaving the car at home, or even not owning a car at all. With so many people taking the bus Houston benefits from a reduction in air pollution and traffic.
The overall education level of Houston citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 29.80% of adults in Houston have at least a bachelor's degree, and the average American community has 21.84%.
The per capita income in Houston in 2010 was $27,938, which is upper middle income relative to Texas and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $111,752 for a family of four. However, Houston contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
Houston is an extremely ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Houston home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Houston residents report their race to be White, followed by Black or African-American. Houston also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 43.89% of the city’s residents.
