Clarksville has the support of a robust economy generating $5 billion in capital investment and more than 7,500 jobs since 2000, making the area a national leader in job growth. With a population of over 200,000 and a population growth of 24% over the last decade, Clarksville is the largest city in our four-county metropolitan statistical area (MSA).
Clarksville is growing and thriving, with a median household income higher than the state average. And that’s just one reason people are flocking here, especially young people—with our average age of just 29! Plus, the local economy is empowered by global diversity, with more than 26 different nationalities represented.
