People may have different perceptions of what it means for a population to be diverse. Here, the concept of racial and ethnic diversity refers to representation and the relative size of different racial and ethnic groups within a population. Diversity is maximized (a value of 100.0) when all groups are represented in an area and have equal shares of the population. Among states, the 2020 diversity index ranged from 18.5% (Maine) to 76% (Hawaii).

The Aging Population. How is the resident population in CD118 AZ 01 aging? The nation's median age increased by 0.2 years to 38.9 years between 2021 and 2022, as recently reported by the U.S. Census Bureau. Median age is the age at which half of the population is older and half of the population is younger. The 2020 median age of CD118 AZ 01 was 44.0 compared to 38.9 in Arizona.

As the nation's median age gets closer to 40, you can see how the aging of baby boomers, and now their children, echo boomers, is impacting the median age. The eldest of the echo boomers have started to reach or exceed the nation's median age of 38.9. While natural change nationally has been positive, as there have been more births than deaths, birth rates have gradually declined over the past two decades. Without a rapidly growing young population, the U.S. median age will likely continue its slow but steady rise.

There were 55.8 million U.S. residents 65 years and older in 2020 compared to 57.8 million as of July 1, 2022. The population age 65 and older was 168,835 for CD118 AZ 01 compared to 1,339,172 for Arizona.

Dependency Ratio. In 2020, the total dependency ratio in the U.S. was 63.6 .. children under age 18 and adults age 65 and older for every 100 working-age person ages 18 to 64. The total dependency ratio provides a rough approximation of economic dependency in a population by dividing the dependent-age populations (children and adults age 65 and older, who are not generally expected to work) by the working-age population (ages 18 to 64). In 2010, the dependency ratio for the nation as a whole was 49.0 .. the working-age population is not keeping pace with growth in older Americans.

The dependency ratio in 2020 was 64.96 for CD118 AZ 01 compared to 70.16 for Arizona

Relationships. Relationship characteristics provide insights in how the population lives in households or group quarters. Within households, key attributes include persons in households, heads of households, spouses/partners, children, relatives and non-relatives.

Households. The total number of households (occupied housing units) in 2020 was 350,632 for CD118 AZ 01 compared to 2,705,878 for Arizona. A household includes all the people who occupy a housing unit. People not living in households are classified as living in group quarters.

About two-thirds of all U.S. households in 2020 were family households, the same share as a decade earlier; married-couple households accounted for about 71% of these households. While married-couple households remained the majority of family households, those with their own children under 18 present decreased by 6%, reflecting the decade's aging of the population as well as the increasing age at first birth.

Population Living in Households versus Group Quarters. Population living group quarters such as dormitories, prisons, nursing homes and other non-household settings can have an outsize impact for small areas like cities and census tracts. The relative size and importance of group quarters population will proportionally increase over the next 15-to-20 years with increases in the aging population residing in non-household settings.

The U.S. population in households was 323,210,265 (97.5%) in 2020 compared to population in group quarters of 8,239,016 (2.5%). The institutional group quarters population was 3,753,401 (1.1%) compared to noninstitutional group quarters population of 4,485,615 (1.4%).

Vacancy Rates. Housing vacancy rates provide information on the rental and homeowner vacancy rates, and characteristics of units available for occupancy, providing insights into the need for new housing programs and initiatives. National vacancy rates in the 2023Q2 were 6.3 percent for rental housing and while the homeowner vacancy rate was 0.7%.

The 2020 homeowner vacancy rate was 0.8 for CD118 AZ 01 compared to 1.7 for Arizona
The 2020 renter vacancy rate was 9.8 for CD118 AZ 01 compared to 8.4 for Arizona
The homeowner vacancy rate is the proportion of the homeowner inventory that is vacant "for sale." It is computed by dividing the total number of vacant units "for sale only" by the sum of owner-occupied units, vacant units that are "for sale only," and vacant units that have been sold but not yet occupied; and then multiplying by 100.
