Fayette Leader Page 3 7. 1981 FaTeite. Iowa 1975 Iowa population May top 3 million Iowa's population in 1975 will be 3,178,000 persons if the state's growth rate continues to increase as it has since 1930, states the August issue of the Iowa Business Digest, published at the State University of Iowa. It is also significant that the rate of out-migration among lo- wans 20 to 34 years old is slowing down — it was not as great in the past decade as it was from 1940 - 50, states' the SUI Digest. . The analysis of Iowa population changes is made by Jarvin Emerson, research assistant in the SUI Bureau of Business and Economic Research, which publishes the Digest. If the out-migration also continues at the 1950-60 rate, the SUI researcher continues, by 1970 — only nine years from now — Iowa would have a 30 per cent increase in population in the 2024 age group. This 30 per cent increase is compared with an 18 per cent decrease which occurred in the number of persons of these ages between 1940 - 50. A similar comparison for the 25 - 29 age group would show a 10 per cent increase in 1970 over the number in that age group in 1980. This 10 per cent increase would compare with a 21 per cent decrease for the past decade. However, Emerson continues, an 18 per cent decrease would be experienced in the number of persons in the 30 - 34 age group in 1970. This group also had a nine per cent decrease from 195060. Emerson says that this reversal in the loss of the state's young people would be experienced because the growth rate for the state has been increasing even though the increase has fallen below the nation for the past three decades. If this prediction is correct, Emerson says, there will be 56.7 persons per square mile in Iowa in 1975 compared with 46.8 persons per square mile in Iowa in 1960. Commenting on Iowa's out-migration during the past 10 years, Emerson notes that it has been focused primarily in the age group from 20 - 34. If Iowa had retained all the persons aged 1014 in 1950, it would have had 28 per cent more persons in the 2024 age group than it did in 1960. Likewise, the SUI publication reports, in the 25-29 age groups in 1960 (persons who were 15-19 years old in 1950) had Iowa kept all of these persons, it would have had 21 per cent more persons in this age group in 1960 than it actually had. Also, the 30-34 age group would have been 15 per cent larger had Iowa kept all its citizens who were 20-24 in 1950. This same measure of out-migration indicates that only Black Hawk, Dubuque, Johnson, Linn, Polk, Scott and Winneshiek counties had more persons in the 20-24 age group in 1960 than they had in the 10-14 age group 10 years before. Consequently, net out-migration did not occur in these counties for this age group during the decade. A similar comparison of the 2529 age group of 1960 with the 1519 age group of 1950 found only Black Hawk, Polk, Pottawattamie, Unn and Scott with no out- migration. Likewise, the 30-34 age group in 1960 was larger than the 2024 age group in 1950 in Cedar, Clinton, Jackson, Linn, Muscatine, Pottawattamie and Scott counties. If geographic pattern is considered, it is in southern Iowa where heavy out-migration has been experienced, reports the Digest. This out-migration of persons particularly in the age group 2034 leaves Iowa population with ah unusual age structure. Although Iowa has the same percentage of its population under 1ft as does the nation; no other state has a larger per cent of its pppulation over 65. The result is that only 12 states have a smaller per cent of their population in the "working age" group, 18-84. The southern tiers of counties have the highest per cent of their population over 65, and those counties with the lowest per cent of their population over 65 are ior the most part counties with Iowa's larger cities.
