Where Adults and Children Live

The American Community Survey provides estimates of the number of adults (ages 18 and older) and the number of children (ages 17 and younger) by five geographies, Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) (similar to but not the same as wards). More adults live in the center of the city and east of the Anacostia River compared to other parts of the city, while more children live east of the Anacostia River and the northern part of the city.
