Demography Sources: STATSIndiana, U.S. Census Bureau 2000 Decennial Census, 2010 Decennial Census, 2013 Estimates, Estimates of the Components of Resident Population Change section 02 The countys overall population increased by 31 percent between 2000 and 2013. The major contributor to that expansion was domestic migration (the difference between the number of people moving into the county versus moving out) with a net growth of almost 11,000 persons. International migration also had a positive effect on population with a net increase of 342, indicating that the county experienced a small influx of new people from outside the U.S. Finally, natural increase (births minus deaths over that span of time) also contributed 3,400 people to the population of Boone County.

9 Population pyramids Population pyramids are visual representations of the age distribution of the population by gender. Approximately 51.2% of the population was female in 2000 (23,601 people), and that percent remained about the same in 2013. What did change is the distribution of people across the various age categories. A larger share of people shifted into the higher age groupings over the 2000 to 2013 time period. Demography Source: U.S. Census Bureau 2000 Decennial Census and 2013 Annual Population Estimates section 02 In particular, people 50 and over swelled from 12.4% to 15.4% for males and from 15.0% to 17.2% for females between 2000 and 2013. Individuals of prime working age -- 20-49 years old -- dipped from 20.6% to 18.6% for males and from 21.6% to 19.0% for females. The percent of residents under 20 years of age has remained unchanged.

10 Race The number of non-White residents in Boone County increased by three percentage points between 2000 and 2013. While every race experienced a numerical increase, the number of individuals that are Black, Asian, or Two or More Races increased between 3 and 6 times relative to their 2000 population, helping to expand the Other Races category from 2 percent to 5 percent of the total population by 2013.

11 Ethnicity Hispanics are individuals of any race whose ancestry is from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spain, the Dominican Republic or any other Spanish- speaking Central or South American country. There were 534 Hispanics residing in Boone County in 2000. This figure expanded to 1,536 by 2013, a 187.6 percent increase. As a result, Hispanics now make up 3 percent of the overall population (versus 1 percent in 2000).

12 Educational attainment Boone County had a 15 percentage point increase between 2000 and 2013 in the proportion of adults (25 and older) with an associates, bachelors, or graduate degree. The proportion of adults 25 years of age and older with a high school education or more improved from 88 percent in 2000 to 93 percent by 2013. Those with only a high school degree fell from 38 percent in 2000 to 28 percent in 2013. Adults with an associates degree grew by 2 percentage points from 2000 to 2013 (6 percent versus 8 percent), while the proportion with a bachelors degree or more increased from 28 percent to 41 percent over that same time period. As a result of this growth, 49 percent of residents in Boone County had a college degree (associates, bachelors or more) in 2013, which far exceeds the Indiana rate of 32 percent.

13 Takeaways The population of Boone County is expected to grow over the next few years, and if past trends hold, that increase will be largely due to domestic in-migration (more people moving into the county from other counties in Indiana or from other places in the U.S. that are moving out). Boone Countys population also grew over the 2000-2013 period. In examining the population composition of Boone County, one finds a growing adult population of 50 and over as well as stable population of minors (0-19 years of age). What is most dramatic is the small percentage of young adults (20-29 years old) living in the county. While it has grown since 2000, it still remains small relative to the other age groups of prime working age. While the population remains largely white and non-Hispanic, the racial and ethnic diversity of the county has more than doubled since 2000. The educational attainment of adults 25 and over had dramatically increased since 2000 and the percent of adults with a terminal high school education or less has dropped. This has resulted in a resident labor force in which 1 in 2 adult residents have an associates, bachelors or higher education, 17 percentage points above the figure for Indiana as a whole. High domestic in-migration and the healthy growth of people with post-secondary education translates into a county that may be gaining importance in the Indianapolis metropolitan area, as both an employment center and residential community. In order to continue their growth toward a balanced ratio of working-age individuals and dependents (minors and elderly), Boone County should continue to develop the mix of services and amenities that will retain and attract educated young adults.
