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.

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.

The percentage of Americans in their early 30s who have not yet married has more than doubled since 1970, and it appears that a growing minority will be single all of their lives, the Census Bureau reported Wednesday. Men between the ages of 30 and 34 who had never married accounted for 23.1% of males in that age group, according to estimates made last March. The figure was 9.4% in a 1970 Census Bureau report. Among women in that age group, 14.

There's Quiet and Comfort on the East Bluff Like that favorite, well-worn cotton polo shirt or a soft old pair of loafers, much of the East Bluff area of Newport Beach gives an almost-undefinable impression of enduring quality and character. To a large extent, the neighborhood has somehow escaped the tile-and-stucco monotony of so many county tracts. The homes are pleasing to the jaded eye, with myriad classic, unpretentious and, above all, livable architectural styles.
