Corrected Aging in The United States

Corrected Aging in The United States

Looking at the traditional data of older adults distributed by state becomes a bit skewed based on the fact that the population variance between states can be significant (e.g., California has a population of 37,200,000, while Vermont has a population of 625,000). Additionally, it was difficult for me to visualize what was happening both within states as well as between different states.
What I found to be very interesting about the way that these data are presented is what the age distribution looks like both within and between states.
The presentation of the data in a bit of a different way gave me a better understanding for the way age groups fluctuate between states (i.e., Look at the 50-54 age group identified by the Yellow circles). It allows us to ask more pointed questions about population distribution.

Memories are physical connections between neurons. I think that is pretty cool!
