Flagstaff Relocation Guide
Flagstaff… now there’s an odd name for a town. What’s even more odd is that no one seems to know just how the name came to be. A number of different groups have laid claim to erecting the flagpole that was responsible for it, but the earliest claim comes from a group of New Englanders who were lured to the area by promises of lush valleys, plentiful water, and easy riches. On July 4, 1876, they ran a flag up a ponderosa pine pole to celebrate the nation’s 100th birthday and then they left, giving the town nothing more than a name, but then that’s giving it quite a bit.
The population was 67,468 in 2012. The median income for a household in the city was $37,146, and the median income for a family was $48,427. Males had a median income of $31,973 versus $24,591 for females. The per capita income for the city was $18,637. About 10.6% of families and 17.4% of the population were below the poverty line, including 17.6% of those under age 18 and 7.0% of those age 65 or over.
As a college town, Flagstaff’s population is considerably more educated than the U.S. average. 89.8% of the population has a high school diploma or higher, while the national average is 80.4%. 39.4% of the population has a Bachelor’s degree or higher, compared to the national average of 24.4%.
