From 2000 to 2010, the city’s median age dropped from 35.5 to 33.2, and although the census hasn’t confirmed it yet, it’s predicted to have dropped even lower in the last decade. As Pittsburgh continues to embrace the incoming tech culture, we should expect to see younger demographics making the move into the newborn ‘Burgh.
