Norwood is a small city in Massachusetts with a population of just over 29,000. It's a nice place to settle down, as retirees account for a greater percentage of the population (17%) here than they do nationally (14%), while young adults feature less prominently in the demographics. Renters tend to be in the minority in the area, and 59% of residents own their homes. Relatively high rent costs could be a contributing factor, as the average rent of $1,346/month is substantially higher than the state average of $1,218.
Norwood has a high concentration of residents older than 25 with advanced degrees compared to the national average (7%), as 11% have earned a Master's or a Doctoral degree. Furthermore, 22% have earned a Bachelor's degree, which also outpaces the national average. Many Norwood residents work in one of four industries: healthcare, retail, scientific, and education. Together, these industries account for 29% of the city's workforce. Meanwhile, in terms of job function, many residents work in management, as 10% of the city's population reports this as their field of work, the highest number of any career path. Norwood workers earn an average annual income of just over $96K, around $13,000 more than those elsewhere in Massachusetts. Norwood's average income also compares favorably to the national average of $73,345.
Norwood residents have an average commute of about 35 minutes, longer than the state average of about 31 minutes.
