The old saying still applies but there are other brief ways to describe life in America today. How about America land of the social presence, home of the demographic metrics? It doesn't have the same ring but it is true for better or worse.

At this point, most of us have some experience in dealing with demographics, social media metrics and digital marketing terminology. Everyday we are inundated with likes, shares, follows, subscriptions and lumped into different categories. We are viewed as numbers, ages and classified by our gender and culture for a variety of reasons.

This can be a maddening way to view the world but the data can sometimes be fun. If you look hard enough, you can find useless stories to entertain yourself and impress your friends.

I did this recently with Danbury, I decided to dig into the city's numbers and let the data tell the tale of the Hat City. The following information won't alter your life but it will be fun to know.

7 Delightful Danbury Demographics You May Not Have Deliberated

Danbury is an interesting place, it's not a big city, it's not a small town but it has some of the advantages and faults of both.

I wanted to see if I could find a theme and after examining the numbers, I'm more confused than when I started. However, I came out with 7 Delightful Danbury Demographics That You May Not Have Deliberated.

I'm most interested in the social data. I think it's interesting that there are so many married people in Danbury and even more fascinating that we have more women here. If you're a single man, you may want to tuck those numbers away and remind yourself at a later date. Sure, the difference in slim but it's in your favor.
