Jobs in Berkeley, California, United States

In the past 17 years, the population of Berkeley, CA has risen 18% to today’s estimate of about 121,000. With an increasing amount of people buying property, home appreciation over the last ten years is 28%. Today, the average price of a home in Berkeley is over $1 million.

High Cost of Living, Average Earnings

This may explain why over half of the city’s population rent rather than own. While still higher than the national average, apartments are far more affordable. The average rent for a studio apartment in Berkeley is $1150; for a 1-bedroom, rent is about $1400; for a 2-bedroom, $1700; for a 3-bedroom, $2250; for a 4-bedroom, $2600.

At only $65k, the city’s average salary is barely enough compensation for its extravagant living costs. 17% of Berkeley’s population earn less than $15k; 35.5% earn more over $100k.

Higher Than Average Crime Rates

The imbalance between Berkeley’s cost of living and average salaries may be one of the primary factors for its high property crime rates. On a scale of 1 – 10, where a higher score means more crime, the national average for property crime is 38. On the same scale, Berkeley property crime rating is 63.  Compared to the national average violent crime rating of 31, Berkeley’s is only slightly above average at 39.

Occupational Percentages and Incomes

Berkeley’s lawyers have the highest average income at $104k. Law enforcement holds second place at $86k, with health practitioners just barely in third at $85k.

Engineers, IT technicians and scientists comprise over 16% of Berkeley’s population — three times the national average. Educators, artists and entertainers also have promising potential, with employment rates more than double the national average.

Climate, Culture & Attractions

One of California’s cooler cities, Berkley’s temperature fluctuates between an average low of 46° in January and a high of 73° in July. Though it rarely — if ever — snows, residents are no stranger to rainfall with 45 rainy days last year.

Berkeley’s attractions include the Adventure Playground, Aquatic Park, the Berkeley Rose Garden, King School Park, and Monkey Island.

Praised for its art, culture and overall aesthetic, Berkeley is undoubtedly a highly desirable place to live — if you can afford its expensive price point and don’t mind the higher crime rates.
