Sunnyvale's demographics tell a story that is unique to the city and Silicon Valley. For starters, the level educational for most Sunnyvale residents is very high. Almost 60% of the residents in this Silicon Valley city have a college education or better. This is most likely because many of the residents who live here were drawn by the technological industries which requre specialization and technology degrees. The population of Sunnyvale is also more affluent than the norm in a city of the similar size in the United States which, again, is most likely due to the higher wages paid by technology companies in Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley residents face one of the most competitive job markets in the country. Not only do they compete with other members of their own community, they also compete with people from all over the nation and from all over the world. The tech industry attracts a diverse population including people who come to the U.S. as visitors or to work and live here permanently. Some of the most innovative entrepreneurs in the world come to Silicon Valley to try their hand in the technology sector.

When not working at their high-pressure jobs, the population of Sunnyvale does enjoy the best recreational facilities from a city that prides itself in providing the best community amenities in its parks, public areas and open spaces. The community is fairly small, has access to good school districts, and has some of the best shopping and dining options in the South Bay.
