DETROIT (WKZO) -- New census estimates show that fewer kids live in Michigan these days.

According to experts, Michigan has experienced one of the largest drops in school-age children in the nation over the last two years.  Since 2010, the state’s number of children, ages five through 17, fell by over 56-thousand, or 3.2-percent.

Only two states had larger percentage drops, Vermont and New Hampshire.  Michigan’s median age continues to rise and is now 39.4-years, two full years higher than the national median.
