Claremont's current economic state is strong. Unemployment is nearly half the national average, while the income per capita is considerably higher than the national figure. Large portions of the population work in the sales and management fields, but a considerable number also work in education because of the large school presence, making this a great place to raise kids. While Claremont Unified School District only manages ten public grade schools, the opportunities for higher education are terrific. The seven campuses, referred to as the Claremont Colleges, are all highly ranked, including Scripps College and Harvey Mudd College.
