With an average age of just under 28, the city's population is notably younger than most cities in Utah. Home ownership is less common than renting in the area, and 41% of residents own their homes, driven in part by a relatively affordable average rent that is $139 a month lower than the state average.

Twelve percent of Provo residents over the age of 25 possess a Bachelor's degree, while 5% have a Master's or Doctoral degree. There are four primary industries in Provo: education, retail, healthcare, and entertainment. Together, these industries make up 30% of the city's workforce. Meanwhile, looking at job function, many workers in these industries are in sales, as 5% of the city's population reports this as their field of work, the highest number of any profession. With an average annual income of just under $60,000, Provo workers earn less than the average Utah resident. The city's average income also trails the national average of $73,345.
