Georgia once held the reputation for bringing in young professionals in their 20s and 30s, but now census reports show they're looking elsewhere.

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 two percent.

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.

    Agreed. Until we stop the corruption in our political system that is helping to cause the death of the middle class we and start making things in our country again - America is on the way down. But as long as we have our Ipads and our social network websites - we're totally fine with all that.
