Cincinnati is attracting people from all walks-of-life. This has helped to attract many large corporations, such as Procter & Gamble, The Kroger Company, and Macy’s, Inc., amongst others. Kroger, the largest employer in the city, has 17,000 employees. The University of Cincinnati is the second largest, with 15,162 employees. As of the 2000 census, the Cincinnati has a population of 2,155,137 people, making it the 24th-largest MSA in the country.
Cincinnati’s culture is strongly influenced by its history of German and Irish immigrants and its geographical position on the border of the Southern United States and Midwestern United States. Cincinnati’s German heritage is evident in the city’s food selection. Many restaurants specialize in schnitzels and Bavarian cooking, as southern Germany was the origin of many immigrants. Two annual festivals focus on traditional German foods: Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, billed as the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside Munich.
The Cincinnati area has one of the highest private school attendance rates in the United States; Hamilton County ranks second only to St. Louis County, Missouri among the country’s 100 largest counties. Cincinnati has seven major sports venues, two major league teams, six minor league teams, and five college institutions with their own sports teams. It is home to Major League Baseball’s Reds, who were named for America’s first professional baseball team; and the Bengals of the National Football League.
