Living Alone

The Census Bureau’s “2015 Population Survey” reports that people living alone has surpassed married couples without children at home as the country’s most common household type: 28% live alone, 27.6% are married without children at home, 20.5% with children at home, 12.5% female-head families, 6.4% unrelated living together, 4.9% male-head families.

Twenty Years of Lakewood Ranch

The 17,500 acres of Florida’s Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota/Bradenton officially broke ground in 1995 under John Clarke’s presidency and Roger Postlethwaite’s guiding management. Parker Associates was there from the beginning.  Since then, according to current Planning VP, Richard Bedford, it has grown to over 25,000 residents in 8,800 new homes for $3.5 billion in sales. Simultaneously, The Ranch has added $660 million of retail commercial and office space, as well as many popular amenities and institutions.

Asians To Be Largest Immigrant Group

The Pew Research Center projects 441 million people in the United States by 2065, of which foreign-born residents will constitute 18 percent of the total (5% in 1965 and 14% in 2015). Asians will surge past Hispanics in 2055 to become the largest group of immigrants at 36% (47% today) compared with Hispanics at 34% (26% today)and white immigrants at 18-20% (80 percent in 1965), with black immigrants in the 8-10% range. A partial reason for the shift is the significant fertility rate decrease in Latin America, especially in Mexico. However, Hispanics will still be the largest ethnic group in 2065 at 24% of the total, 46% whites, and 14% Asians.
