The City of Scottsdale has some great information on their web site. I’m always finding something new.
Yesterday, I found this report — City of Scottsdale: Quick Statistics
Some of the data is from 2008, and there may be some updates coming now that the 2010 Census data is available. Other info is fairly static, like:
- The city is 184.2 square miles, stretching 31 miles from North to South
- Elevation ranges from 1,277 feet to 4,789 feet above sea level.
- The weather is gorgeous! An average of 328 days of sunshine and 9 inches of rain per year. Average min and max temperatures are 53°F to 86°F.
- The largest employers are Scottsdale Healthcare, Mayo Clinic, and General Dynamics.
