How Old Are Lanstonauts?

How old is the typical Lanstronaut? The census has the median age or a citizen here at 33.9; when you include the Lansing Metropolitain Area, that number is in the 40s.

When mapped across our neighborhoods however, patters emerge. younger folks take up the most space at MSU, obviously. Gen Z and Millennials can also be seen in the apartments near Forest View, as well as many places downtown. And like many cities, the further from the urban core, the older the demographic.

What patterns do you see?

Data from the ACS (ages) as well as OpenStreetMap contributors (streets, water and greenspace). See an error? Maybe you want to become a contributor and make it better for the next person.
