If you think you're seeing fewer young people in Wisconsin, you're right.

The U.S. Census Bureau said Thursday that 14.4 percent of the state's population was 65 or older as of last July. That's just less than one percent more than in the 2010 Census.

Wisconsin had an estimated 824,500 seniors as of last July. That includes 124,000 who were 85 or older - an increase of 6,000 during the previous two years.
