Mesa is a city in Maricopa County, in Arizona and is a suburb located
about 20 miles Phoenix. Mesa is in the East Valley section of the
Phoenix Metropolitan Area. It is bordered by Tempe on the west, the Salt
River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community on the north, Chandler and Gilbert
on the south, and Apache Junction on the east. As of the 2010 Census
Mesa became the Arizona Center of Population.
Mesa is the
third-largest city in Arizona, after Phoenix and Tucson, the
37th-largest city and largest suburb in the US. Despite being home to
439,041 as of 2010, reported by the Census Bureau, making its population
larger than more recognizable cities such as Miami, Minneapolis, St.
Louis, and Cleveland, Mesa is decidedly a bedroom community. Mesa is
home to the Polytechnic campus of Arizona State University.
median income for a household in the city was $42,817, and the median
income for a family was $49,232. Males had a median income of $35,960
versus $27,005 for females. The per capita income for the city was
$19,601. About 6.2% of families and 8.9% of the population were below
the poverty line, including 10.7% of those under age 18 and 7.1% of
those age 65 or over. Mesa’s residents exhibit a great deal of economic
diversity with low-income areas constructed somewhat close to high-scale
neighborhoods with expensive custom homes. The neighborhood “Marlborough
Mesa”, along with many other neighborhoods, has won a community award.
Mesa is the largest city in the United States that is not a
consolidated city-county or a county seat.
