Daybreak Demographics

When you study demographics you study the future. What does the future of Daybreak hold? Lots of kids. According to recent census information, 35% of south Jordan's population is under the age of 18. With another 31% falling between the ages of 18 and 44. Instead of a bell curve South Jordan's population looks like one large declining slope with a jagged peak in the middle. The most recent demographics of Daybreak indicate a whopping 43% of residents are under 18 with the majority of those between the ages of 0 and 3. Yeah lots of kids. No matter when I walk or drive the streets of Daybreak kids are out playing and having a good time. It makes a nice atmosphere. What about income? 75% of households in South Jordan gross more than 50,000 dollars a year with 25% making over 100,000. Much higher than average. People who live in South Jordan tend to be more educated with 31% holding a bachelor's degree or higher level of education. These demographics have been formed by a formidable population explosion. In 2000 the population was around 30,000, but now it has grown 67% to just over 50,000. City officials estimate that South Jordan's population will top out at around 90,000. This will probably happen once Daybreak has been completed. In short South Jordan as well as Daybreak are budding communities that will see years of substantial growth. This is definitely in drastic contrast with many older, but declining neighborhoods and towns in the Salt Lake valley. All of this bodes well for Daybreak residents as demographics such as these facilitate a healthy community. Hopefully it will stay that way for generations to come.
