Florida tidbits from the 2010 Census

During the past decade, Floridians got older and were less inclined to get married. More unrelated Floridians moved in together and the number of unmarried domestic partners grew. Thursday's release of new demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau offers a new prism into Florida's changes over the last decade.

- Floridians grew older in the past decade. The median age went from 38.7 in 2000 to 40.7 in 2010.

- Floridians were less likely to be married. The share of husband and wife households declined from 50.4 percent in 2000 to 46.6 percent in 2010.

- The number of unrelated people living together increased from 5.9 percent of households in 2000 to 6.7 percent of households in 2010.

- The share of unmarried partners increased from 2.3 percent in 2000 to 2.9 percent of Florida households.

- More Floridians are living alone than a decade ago - 27.2 percent in 2010 compared to 26.6 percent in 2000.
