Greenville M.S.A. is home to 175,842 residents and approximately 10,000 workers commute into the area every day. Average age is 31.5. Our median household income is $41,119. Total enrollment at East Carolina University – the third largest university in North Carolina – is 28,962. East Carolina University and Pitt Community College produce a steady wave of graduates from professional programs in medicine, finance, IT, engineering, sciences, and other fields requiring four-year and advanced degrees (29.7 of Greenville M.S.A. residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher).

High schools, industrial schools, regional military bases, and Pitt Community College training programs provide a continuing reserve of skilled labor for building trades, industry, customer service, distribution, and other occupations. That’s a major reason why companies like DSM, Hyster-Yale, ASMO, Patheon, and Weyerhaeuser have established major manufacturing facilities here.
