One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.10% of the workforce.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'. But such people can and do regularly live in small towns, suburbs and rural areas, as well as in big cities. They read, support the arts and high-end shops, and love travel.

Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Sammamish’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
