downtown-poulsbo-532pxport-orchard-waterfront

I’ve lived in two zip codes in Kitsap County during my 36 year tenure here – Poulsbo’s 98370 whose demographics I profiled in my previous blog post and 98366 in Port Orchard. How do the two waterfront communities compare? They look oddly similar when viewed from their respective city marinas with a dominating steeple in the background.

Using the same website that provides aggregate data from the 2010 Census, The United States Postal Service, FedEx, UPS, Google and Yahoo…….

PORT ORCHARD IS YOUNGER: Port Orchard’s median age is 38 compared to Poulsbo’s median age of 43.

PORT ORCHARD IS EQUALLY POPULATED BY MEN AND WOMEN. The genders are each 50% of the population while Poulsbo has a slightly higher ratio of women.

TWICE AS MANY PEOPLE WORK FROM HOME IN POULSBO: Poulsbo 7%, Port Orchard 3.8%

PORT ORCHARD SENDS MORE CHILDREN TO PUBLIC SCHOOL THAN POULSBO – 83% in Port Orchard vs 77% in Poulsbo.

POULSBO HAS A HIGHER MEDIAN INCOME: $71,410 in Poulsbo vs $56,549 in Port Orchard.

This website provides these additional 98366 facts:

  1. 98366 is located at the same latitude at Vienna, Austria
  2. 299 of you ride your bikes or walk to work regularly.

My single parenthood has launched a successful son. My long-time, rewarding job has culminated in a modest retirement pension and evolved into part time consulting work. I made a list of all the times I said, "if only I had the time, I would..." . Prominent on the list were all the places I wanted to travel and getting more familiar with my home base. And so I am. I author two blogs: PeregrineWoman.com about my travels and ExplorationKitsap.com about where I live.
