Age Distribution Trend
The 2010 Census revealed that Georgia's population has aged slightly since the 2000 Census. This trend was also true for metro Atlanta, and was in keeping with the overall national pattern. The percentage of Georgian's under the age of 14 decreased from 22.2 percent of the population in 2000 to 21.4 percent of the population in 2010. The opposite end of the age spectrum - those older than 65 - increased as a percentage of the state's population from 7.7 percent in 2000 to 10.7 percent in 2010. The largest segment of the population was those aged between 25 and 44, which accounted for 28.2 percent of the state's population. However, that segment was down from 32.4 percent in 2000.
