CNNMoney's Les Christie was nice enough to sort through some of the Census data to make a few points about our population.
So here's the answers to where the oldsters live.
like anything else it depends on how you figure it. If you use the new Census and base it on median age, it's not Florida, as you may think it's
The median age in Maine in 2010 was 42.7, 4.55 higher than the national average and 2 years older than Florida.
Who da thunk it?
Three factors come into play;
low birth rate
outward migration of young families
retention of their older residence.
So, back to Florida
If you base your decision on the percentage of Senior citizens, that being those 65 and older, than Florida wins hands down with 17.3 %. Oh by the way this is also the 2nd fastest growing age group. Second to
the boomers of course (45 to 64)
So there it is, now you know
where the oldsters live
ps; i live in Florida, but I'm a BOOMER, not an oldster.
