Lynnwood is located in Snohomish County, Washington. The population was 35,836 at the 2010 census, making it the fourth largest in Snohomish County and twenty-ninth largest in Washington State.
The city is a mix of urban, suburban, small city, crossroads and bedroom community to many professionals who work in Seattle. Lynnwood is known to be the “hub city” of south Snohomish County because of all the retail shopping. Straddling the junction between Interstate 5 and the north end of Interstate 405 in Washington, it is the final tangle of population on the north end of “greater Seattle” before one continues on to other places: Everett, Bellingham, or Vancouver, BC. Its climate is wet and cool, wetter than that of Seattle. The center of the town at 44th Avenue West and 196th Southwest has the usual American panoply of small businesses, strip malls, and retail stores. Outside the commercial center of Lynnwood, to the east and north, lie Alderwood Mall, houses, and portions of the green belt.
The median income for a household in the city was $42,814, and the median income for a family was $51,825. Males had a median income of $37,395 versus $30,070 for females. The per capita income for the city was $19,971. About 6.2% of families and 9.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 9.8% of those under age 18 and 12.2% of those age 65 or over.
