The Aging Of The Grand Traverse Region

Oct. 3, 2018

Grand Traverse County is getting old! The Grand Traverse area’s population growth continues to outstrip other Michigan towns, while nearly all that growth is in the upper age range. Michigan as a whole is aging at a faster rate than the rest of the country, and this area is graying faster than the rest of the state. The median age in northwest Michigan ranges from 41.9 years in Wexford County to 53.3 years in Leelanau County, higher than the U.S. median age of 37.8, or Michigan’s median age of 39.5 years.

This month's Traverse City Business News explores the data and the impact of an aging population on the region's infrastructure, employment, and economy.

The October TCBN also includes the list of the top-selling vehicles and auto dealers in the area, a feature on local banks' advances in technology, the debut of McKeel Hagerty as an opinion columnist, and much more.
