Another follow-up to the release of the state-by-state break down of Census 2000 data by the staff of the Daily Record reveals that not only is Morris County becoming more crowded, with 12 percent more houses and apartments then 1991; the county is also getting older. Census data also showed the median age of the county's 470,000 residents at 37.8, three years older than 1991 and 2.5 years older then the rest of the county. The Record's analysis of the data shows that the make-up of the family in the area is also changing. Thirty-one percent of the households in the county are traditional nuclear families, with the percentage of married couples with children, 16 percent, rising faster then the percentage of families without, 10 percent. The Record also found that the number of singles in the county increased by 30 percent, and with it the number unrelated housemates. Further analysis showed a shift in the county's ethnic make-up, Asian Indians surpassed Chinese as the dominant Asian group in the area, 2.3 percent vs. 2 percent.
