A closer look at the population

According to data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2010 Detroit’s median age represented a younger population than that at the state, regional and national level. According to an analysis performed by Impressa for CEOs for Cities of 2000 and 2010 Census data and data provided by the 2005-2009 American Community Survey, Detroit’s population of 25-34 year-olds with a four year degree or higher increased by 1,967 residents, or about 59 percent. The New York Times provides an increased drive by young artists and “socially aware hipsters” looking to revitalize an urban setting as a reason behind the spike of this portion of the population. Data provided by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget also describes how from 2009-10 the rate of migration to other states for residents between the ages of 60-74 increased while it decreased for those between the ages of 1-29, 35 to 59, and those above the age of 75.
