Median Age in Greater Lansing Has Grown
According to the Lansing State Journal, the number of people calling Greater Lansing home has grown slowly but steadily.
The U.S. Census Bureau released 5 year estimates for more than 40 demographic topics from the 2014 to 2018 American Community Survey on Wednesday.
An analysis of the six data sets available for Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties shows Greater Lansing is aging, becoming more diverse and growing faster than other parts of Michigan.
Let's take a look at the breakdown:
The median age in Greater Lansing increased from about 36 to 39.
Clinton County had the biggest jump in median age, from about 38 to about 41.
Eaton County retained the highest median age at 43, up from 40 in 2010.
All three counties had more than 30 percent growth in the population of people ages 65 and older.
Eighteen to 64 remains the largest age demographic, though the population of adults who haven't yet reached retirement age only grew by 0.7 percent between 2010 and last year. Please click on the above link for more information.
