SNAPSHOT: MEDIAN AGE OF MALES, 2010

By Matt Carroll, Boston Globe | Jan. 19, 2012
Males in Massachusetts tend to be older in the western part of the state and on the Cape, according to 2010 data from the US Census. However, the town with the youngest males is in western Mass. -- Amherst. Not surprising, given the colleges there. Other younger communities include Lawrence and Cambridge.
