Silicon Valley Index

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 12:50 pm

Some interesting aspects I found in the 2022 Silicon Valley Index:

  • The total population declined due to net emigration.
  • Asian now constitutes 39% of the population, more than white (29%), Hispanic (24%), black (2%), and the others (6%).
  • The median income ($138100) is about the twice the US value ($67300).
  • Apple and Alphabet employed 12% of the total work force.
  • Despite a relatively low household poverty rate of 5%, nearly 33% of all households do not earn enough money to meet their most basic needs without public or private/informal assistance.
  • Non-residential development approvals hit an all-time high in FY 2020-21, with more than 21.5 million square feet of space approved.
