This page includes data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) on the age distribution of the population. A larger share of children in a population is an indicator of a family-friendly community and a vibrant, growing workforce. Conversely, a larger share of seniors in a population is an indicator of a community with greater health care needs and more people exiting the workforce and becoming economically dependent on the working-age population.
