It has a population of 55,037, which consists of 79 percent white, 13 percent black. 5.3 percent Hispanic, and 0.9 percent Asian residents. Anderson is known for being the origin point and headquarters of the Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) and is home to Anderson University. There are several points of interest within the city including the Paramount Theater, Mounds State Park, the Gruenewald House, and the Anderson Center for the Arts. Anderson has a thriving downtown area full of dining, shopping, and recreational opportunities.

Socioeconomic Statistics

The cost of living in Anderson is well below the national average with an index of 70.6. The main reason for this is that the housing in the city is so inexpensive; the median home price is $59,100. Despite such a low cost of living, 25.8 percent of residents in Anderson are living in poverty. Additionally, the median household income is $34,693, which is much lower than the national median household income of $61,937.

While the poverty rate is 22.23 percent for white residents, it is 51.13 percent for Native Americans, 41.5 percent for Hispanics, and 34.58 percent for African Americans living in the city.

While there are many factors that go into why a person might have a mental illness, there are several studies that show a strong relationship between poverty and mental health issues. This is true for both adults and children, with some sources stating that mental disorders are twice as common among low-income groups.

The divorce rate for white residents is at 19.4 percent.
