Demography Sources: STATSIndiana, U.S. Census Bureau – 2000 Decennial Census, 2010 Decennial Census, 2013 Estimates, Estimates of the Components of Resident Population Change section 02 The total population increased by 8 percent between 2000 and 2013. The major contributor to that expansion was natural increase (births minus deaths over that span of time) with a net growth of nearly 100,188 persons. Data on domestic migration (the difference between the number of people moving in of the county versus moving out) shows that in-migration was outpaced by out-migration by 64,339 people. On the other hand, international migration had a net increase of 30,341 individuals, indicating that the county experienced an influx of new people from outside the U.S. 860,454 903,393 928,281 951,780 2020201320102000 Total population projections *Components of population extracted from Components of Population Change 2010 (CO-EST-2010) and Components of Population Change (PEPCOMP 2013).

There are proportionately more females than males in Marion County. Approximately 48.3 percent of the population was male in 2000 (415,998 people) and that percent increased slightly to 48.4 percent (447,822 people) in 2013. The distribution of people across the various age categories changed as well, with a larger share of people shifting into the higher age groupings Demography Source: U.S. Census Bureau – 2000 Decennial Census and 2013 Annual Population Estimates section 02 over the 2000 to 2013 time period. The number of individuals 50 and over now stands at nearly 273,000 people (about 30 percent of the population, up from 24 percent in 2000).

  9. 9. 9 Race The number of non-White residents in Marion County increased by 6 percentage points between 2000 and 2013. While every race other than White experienced a numerical increase, the population of Black and Mixed Descent races gained the most people, expanding from 24 percent to 28 percent and 1 percent to 3 percent, respectively, of the total population between 2000 and 2013.

  10. 10. 10 Ethnicity Hispanics are individuals of any race whose ancestry is from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Spain, the Dominican Republic or any other Spanish- speaking Central or South American country. There were 33,300 Hispanics residing in Marion County in 2000. This figure expanded to 90,426 by 2013, a 171 percent increase. As a result, Hispanics now make up 10 percent of the overall population (versus 4 percent in 2000).

The proportion of adults (25 years of age and older) with a high school education or more improved from 82 percent in 2000 to 84 percent by 2013. The percent with less than a high school education fell by 2 percent over the 2000 to 2013 time period (from 18 percent to 16 percent). On the other hand, those with some college education stayed constant (21 percent) and those with an associate’s degree grew from 6 percent to 7 percent. The number of adults with a bachelor’s degree or more grew from 25 percent in 2000 to 27 percent in 2013, a 2 percent increase.
  12. 12. 12 Takeaways The population of Marion County is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years, and, if past trends hold, that increase will be largely due to natural increase (more births than deaths). While Marion County’s population grew from 2000 to 2013, it has also become slightly older. The number of residents in Marion County that are 50 years of age and above has increased from 210,000 people in 2000 to 273,000 people in 2013. They have also increased as a share of residents, from 24 percent to 30 percent. In addition, 64,300 people migrated out of Marion County to other parts of the country, meaning that individuals are moving out of the county at a faster pace than they are moving in. Part of this movement is counter-balanced by international immigration, which increased the population of Marion County by 30,341 people between 2000 and 2013. The education level of the population has increased, although 16 percent of the population do not have a high school diploma. The county has become more racially and ethnically diverse since 2000. In order to attract more highly educated working-age individuals, Marion County should explore what mix of services and amenities will retain and attract these educated young adults and prevent some of leaving the county.

  26. 26. 26 Takeaways Marion County experienced an explosion of self-employment and Stage 1 establishments between 2000 and 2011. So, focusing on the needs of the self- employment (Stage 0) and start-up (Stage 1) establishments may be worthwhile to sustain the businesses. Healthcare, waste management and government are growth sectors for Marion County. These are industries and occupations that demand workers with varying educational levels. Median income has decreased and poverty has increased in Marion County since 2000. Marion County might focus on policies and programs that strengthen high-growth Stage 2 firms since they employ several people and capture sizable sales. This could help the new self- employment and Stage 1 establishments grow at a faster pace as well. Promoting job growth for occupations in sectors that hire production and farming workers may help offset the large proportional decrease in employment these occupations have experienced since 2000. Services targeted to poverty-stricken individuals should be considered, given the dramatic rise in poverty, especially among children under 18 years of age. Economy section 03

Fifty-one percent of individuals working in Marion County commute from another county for work. Hamilton County, Indiana, and Hendricks County, Indiana, are the biggest sources of outside labor for Marion County. Twenty-seven percent of in-commuters reside in counties adjacent to Marion County. However, Marion county attracts workers from the entirety of Indiana.
  33. 33. 33 Laborshed in 2011 Labor market section 04 Source: U.S. Census Bureau, OTM, LEHD, PCRD Around 80 percent of Marion County’s workforce is drawn from Marion County and its adjacent counties, excluding Shelby County.

Combined, the counties represent 90 percent of Marion County’s laborshed.
  34. 34. 34 Takeaways Marion County’s unemployment rate has increased since 2002. The majority of this increase occurred during the Great Recession (approximately 2008 to 2010), reaching a peak in 2010. Despite population increases of more than 60,000 people, the county’s labor force has only increased marginally since 2002 (+8,000 people). This may be due to a larger increase in the aging population of Marion County relative to its working age population. Employees that work but do not live in Marion County tend to commute from different parts of Indiana, but this movement is especially strong for surrounding counties. People who commute out of the county tend to travel short distances within Indiana for work . Marion County should assess if a major workforce development training effort should be targeted to the growing number of working age adults struggling to find jobs. The laborshed and commuteshed data offer solid evidence of the central role of Marion County in Indiana and the advantages of pursuing economic and workforce development on a regional (multi-county) basis.
