Fleeting Youth: Where the Median Age is Lowest

The national median age in the United States increased during the first decade of the millennium from 35.3 to 37.2, according to the United States Census Bureau.[1] The swelling proportion of older Americans is a result of the Baby Boomer bulge, the post-World War population surge from 1945 to 1965 that has advanced to age 60 years and above.[2]

Yet, according to a new report from RealtyTrac, there are many communities bucking that demographic trend. One zip code in Sarasota Springs, Utah with a population of 17,000 has a median age just over 19, while in a section of fast-growing Irvine, California, the population of less than 17,000 has a median age just over 20.

This data report shows all zip codes with a population of 500. The 20 with the lowest median age are listed below. For the complete report, or any questions on this or our many other datasets, please contact our PR Department directly at pr@realtytrac.com.
