Atlanta, Georgia - 5-12

Georgia's long-held reputation as a draw for young professionals is on the line as those in their 20s and 30s appear to be looking elsewhere for opportunities.

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the state's population of 25- to 34-year-olds and 35- to 44-year-olds each declined by 2 percentage points over the past decade.

During the same period, Georgia added people 45 and older in
nearly every category, with the largest increase being those 60 to
64 years old.

The changes equal a slight increase in Georgia's median age to
35.3 years.
