Single in the City
Selections of cities across the nation are home to these 20 -29 year old well educated singles that rent and live independently in a high rise apartment. With graduate degrees in physical science, math, visual arts and culture, they are launching into the work force, working in service and sales or arts and culture sectors. As they are starting in entry level positions, incomes are below average at $30,000 - $60,000 and expenditures are reflective of this, with lower than average spending on clothing, furnishings, education, communication equipment and reading materials. They are high users of public transportation, bikes and walking as their urban environments offer close proximity to services and amenities. There is high ethnic diversity, many of Northern and Eastern European, Japanese and Mexican descent with a number of non-permanent residents, which adds a unique vibrancy to these communities. Although downtown single city life is satisfying, these city bred singles are highly mobile. Being the architects of their careers, they aspire to create families and craft a meaningful lifestyle.
