Median Age, Change, 2000 to 2010

Loading Data...

Visualization Notes:

The median age in Arizona rose 1.9 years between 2000 and 2010, the same increase as the national average. Six Arizona counties had an increase of more than 4.5 years: Gila, La Paz, Mohave, and Yavapai counties have a high and rising proportion of retirees, while the percentage of children fell significantly in Apache and Navajo counties, each of which has a large American Indian population. Two counties experienced a decline in the median age. Yuma County’s decrease was marginal while Pinal County’s decrease resulted from the northern part of the county becoming a suburban area to Phoenix, with many young working-age families moving to the county.
