The Region's Young Workers: Aging and Retention Across Decades (1950-2010)

The graph below shows how each decade's cohort of workers age 20 to 29 have changed over the following decade. So for example, workers who were between 20 and 29 years of age in 1950 saw a growth of 9.2% in 1960, when they were then ages 30 to 39. Each decade's cohort of 20 to 29 year olds were compared to the subsequent decade's 30 to 39 year olds to see if they had gained or lost numbers.
