As part two in a three part series, this article provides some quick stats behind six of the largest suburbs East of Seattle, and serves as supplemental information to Part One of the series, which introduces readers to a comprehensive overview of the Eastside region. The third (and final) installation of the series share more in depth information about each of the main individual cities, and serves as a guide for those looking to choose an Eastside city to relocate to.
For purposes of this article, we focus on the following cities: Issaquah, Sammamish, Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville and Kirkland. For sake of comparison, we have also provided information for some of the data sets for the city of Seattle as well. Being the largest city in Washington and just a short drive from the Eastside, it can be a helpful reference point.
Information on the sources used in the article can be found throughout and at the end of the page. Please keep in mind that these stats can (and do) vary each year, so are meant to be a starting point for readers to reference. Data includes the most accurate information we could access at time of publishing (September 2020), much of which was sourced from the most current census.gov information.
Without further ado, let’s get to know some of the numbers behind the Eastside! Keep on scrolling to read through the article in its entirety, or use the quick links below to navigate to information about a specific data set.
