Burlington is the largest city in the U.S. state of Vermont and the shire town of Chittenden County.
Burlington had a population of 42,417 at the 2010 census.
Some believe Burlington was named after Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington. Others assert that the name honors the politically prominent and wealthy Burling family of New York. While no family members are listed as grantees of this town, the family held large tracts of land in other nearby towns, some of which were granted on the same day as Burlington.
As of the census of 2000, the median income for a household in the city was $33,070, and the median income for a family was $46,012. Males had a median income of $30,144 versus $25,270 for females. The per capita income for the city was $19,011. About 10.4% of families and 20.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 19.4% of those under age 18 and 10.5% of those age 65 or over.
Burlington has a humid continental climate, with cold winters and warm, humid summers. Fall and spring are transition seasons in between. From January to July, monthly mean temperatures range from 18.0 to 70.6 °F. The annual precipitation of 36.1 inches is well-distributed throughout the year, but the summer months are the wettest. The city's location east of Lake Champlain sometimes accounts for localized snow squalls, producing up to 13 inches in 12 hours on rare occasions. Annual snowfall is usually large, averaging 81 inches, but this figure often varies widely.
