From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of U.S. states, the District of Columbia and territories by median age in 2018. Median age is the age that divides a population into two numerically equal groups - that is, half the people are younger than this age and half are older. It is a single index that summarizes the age distribution of a population. [note 1]
