Population Characteristics – Age

Table 6 data is a bit surprising with regard to population age comparisons between the study area and surrounding areas.  The median age in the study area is notably older than the surrounding areas.  This data appears to reflect that students have not populated the study area in the same proportion as other areas.  This is a reasonable extrapolation since the majority of RPI student housing is located more than ¼-mile from the Upper Congress Street corridor.  In addition, the population within the ½-mile and 1-mile radii includes not only RPI students, but Sage students as well.  The data for Young Adult (17-24) in Table 7 further illustrates that point.  Still, the median age of the population within the study area (32.89 years) is a couple of years younger than the median age for the country as a whole (35.3 years).
