U.S. Census Bureau
The U.S. Census Bureau says the population of Michigan continues to get older as a whole at a faster rate than some other states.
Michigan’s estimated population grew a fraction of a percentage point in 2012, the first increase in the measure for the state since 2004, according to figures from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Nearly six in 10 Detroit children were living below the poverty line as of 2011, and Michigan’s overall poverty rate was rising as its average income was falling, according to figures the U.S. Census Bureau released Thursday.
According to a new U.S. Census Bureau study, education levels had more effect on earnings over a 40-year span in the workforce than any other demographic factor, such as gender and race.
