Most Expensive Provo Neighborhoods
Provo is a larger medium-sized city located in the state of Utah. With a population of 114,801 people and 28 constituent neighborhoods, Provo is the third largest community in Utah.
Provo is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 86.05% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Provo is a city of professionals, sales and office workers and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Provo who work in office and administrative support (15.64%), teaching (13.46%) and sales jobs (11.28%).
Also of interest is that Provo has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Of important note, Provo is also a city of artists. Provo has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Provo’s character.
Combining city textures and college town sensibilities, Provo really has a nice blend of characteristics. While not a huge city, Provo 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. Its size and diversity makes Provo more than just a college town, but removing the students from the equation would undeniably change Provo’s character and quality of life.
Not only is Provo 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 Provo 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 Provo 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 Provo is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.71 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.
The population of Provo is very well educated relative to most cities and towns in the nation, where the average community has 21.84% of its adult population holding a 4-year degree or higher: 39.92% of adults in Provo have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree.
The per capita income in Provo in 2010 was $17,539, which is low income relative to Utah and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $70,156 for a family of four. However, Provo contains both very wealthy and poor people as well. Provo also has one of the higher rates of people living in poverty in the nation, with 30.14% of its population below the federal poverty line.
Provo is a somewhat ethnically-diverse city. The people who call Provo home describe themselves as belonging to a variety of racial and ethnic groups. The greatest number of Provo residents report their race to be White, followed by Asian. Provo also has a sizeable Hispanic population (people of Hispanic origin can be of any race). People of Hispanic or Latino origin account for 16.84% of the city’s residents. Important ancestries of people in Provo include English, European, German, Danish, Irish and Scottish.
The most common language spoken in Provo is English. Some people also speak Spanish.
