The nation's median age has topped 31, with the middle-aged and the very old becoming the fastest growing segments of society, the Census Bureau reported today. As of last July 1, the "median" American was 31.2 years old, meaning that half of all Americans were older than that and half younger.

Statistically speaking, Americans are growing older, with the median age in the United States reaching a record 32.3 years, the Census Bureau reported Wednesday. That means half of all the people living in the country were older than 32.3 years, as of last July 1. This is up from the median age of 32.1 a year earlier. By states, the oldest Americans are in Florida and the youngest in Utah, with Nebraska and North Carolina in the middle. The maturing of the massive baby boom generation, born in the years following World War II, is raising the nation's median age, census officials and other analysts have noted.

Americans are getting married at ever-older ages, and a new report says this trend may be partly responsible for the shrinking of the middle class. On average, brides are 26.5 years old and grooms are 28.7 when they head to the alter, according to the authors of the report, “Knot Yet,” which was released Friday by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and collaborators. Those ages represent historic highs. For college-educated men and women, delaying marriage has paid off - literally.

Pudgy, pink Gerber babies are no longer the typical child being born in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, moms who are Latino, Asian, African American or mixed race are now giving birth to just over 50% of American babies. Though the median age of Americans of European heritage is 42, the median age of Latinos is 28. The median for Asians and blacks falls somewhere around 33. You do not need a biologist or sociologist to tell you younger people make more babies, so this historic trend toward a more multiracial nation will continue.

Towering, seemingly ancient eucalyptus trees line streets with names such as Arroyo and Red Hill and Skyline--testament to the long-established presence of Red Hill, a quiet, unincorporated neighborhood just north of Tustin. Amid the luxurious scent of the eucalyptus, large, well-maintained homes, many with red tile roofs, are scattered along the winding streets like so many russet beads on a string. Just south of Cowan Heights and Lemon Heights, two of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Orange County, Red Hill is also considered prime real estate.
