Demographics

Our three county region is part of the second fastest-growing Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) in the United States. On top of that, the working population is young and vital. According to the U.S. Census, the average age in our main county (Christian) is a remarkable eight years younger than the national average.

 

South Western Kentucky is also home to the fastest-growing city and county in the state of Kentucky. Companies from Europe to Asia have opened plants and offices here in recent years, and they found plenty of energetic workers ready to roll up their sleeves. Every year, more than 11,000 potential workers join our regional workforce.

 

The two major ethnic groups in South Western Kentucky are White (66%) and African-American (31%). The next largest group is Asian. The community is family-oriented with 67% living in family households (32% of these have children under the age of 18). The next largest household group is classified as Single (30%).
