Do you have a parent or grandparent who is one of the 65,000+ Jackson County Oregon residents aged 50+? Population Growth for the RogueValley has averaged over 1.5% per year. One segment is the 50+ age group, a group which represents roughly 33% of the residents of Jackson County's estimated 199,295 residents in 2007.
Age Characteristics (from City of Medford Comprehensive Plan)
In 2000, the majority of cities in Jackson County had a greater percentage of residents under age 18 than over age 65, including Medford. However, Jackson County had a lower percentage of residents under age 39 (51%) than Oregon (56%), but a higher percentage of residents over age 50 (33%) than Oregon (29%). This suggests that Jackson County, including Medford, is attracting people who have retired or are soon to retire. Baby boomers (aged 45 to 64) were the fastest growing age group in all of the cities in Jackson County in the 1990s, except for Medford, Talent, and White City. Medford, Talent, and Central Point had the greatest increase in younger residents - under age 44. Medford experienced the highest growth in the County in the 5 to 17 age group, which grew by 3,627 - a 44% increase.
