State News Roundup: Wisconsin's median age gettting older
If you think you're seeing fewer young people in Wisconsin, you're right. The U-S Census Bureau said this morning that 14-point-four percent of the state's population was 65-or-older as of last July. That's seven-tenths-of-a-percent more than in the 2010 Census. Wisconsin had an estimated 824-thousand-500 seniors as of last July. That includes 124-thousand who were 85-or-older - an increase of six-thousand during the previous two years.
