The population living inside Loop 610 has grown increasingly older (18 years of age and older) and has families with fewer children. This trend is also seen in Houston as a whole. The working age population (18-64 years of age) increased steadily since 1970 despite the oil bust of the 1980s which drove many residents to seek employment outside of Houston. Loop 610 has experienced a slow but continual drop in school age children (under the age of 18) since 1960. The senior citizen population grew at a similar proportion within Loop 610 as in the city overall.
