Over the past decade, Arizona has seen rapid growth in the number of youngsters living in the state who are under the age of 10. Demographers say that this trend indicates that there could be more demand for services such as child care, teachers, and school construction. With more children in the state, it's also possible that local family law attorneys will be handling more cases involving child custody, visitation, adoption, or parenting rights.
According to The Arizona Republic, 2010 Census data showed that the state of Arizona added 137,000 kids to the children in the under 10 age group from 2000 to 2010. The nation as a whole, saw this age group increase by 825,000 children. Based on these numbers, it looks like the the child population growth in the Grand Canyon State really did contribute significantly to the national increase of children in the specified age range.
