* The latest Census bureau figures put 27.8% of Georgia’s population at 20-39 years, and 26.7% at 40-59 years, for a total of 54.5 percent, which would put the Georgia population of people age 20-59 at 5,733,400 (54.5% of 10.52 million). ConnectLocal utilized this figure when calculating the number of cases for the age range of 18-59, as it is the closest available figures provided by the Census Bureau.


** The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that more than 20 percent of Georgia's population will be 60 and older by the year 2030, an increase of almost 34 percent from 2012 – Source: U.S. Administration on Aging. For the purposes of this article, ConnectLocal utilized the higher 20% figure in our calculation; 20% of Georgia’s 10.52 million is 2.11 million Georgia residents age 60 or older.
