Re­gion top­sold age list

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

Dum­fries and Gal­loway has the joint old­est pop­u­la­tion in Scot­land.

The av­er­age age of the re­gion’s res­i­dents is just un­der 49.

And that puts it on a par with Ar­gyll and Bute.

The two re­gions top a list of Scot­tish lo­cal au­thor­ity ar­eas with the old­est pop­u­la­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to new fig­ures from the Of­fice for Na­tional Sta­tis­tics, Glas­gow has the youngest.

The av­er­age age of peo­ple liv­ing in the city is now un­der 36 – its low­est level since at least the turn of the cen­tury.

The me­dian age across the coun­try is 42 which is more than three years higher than it was at the turn of the cen­tury.
