DC baby boom; white infants and toddlers biggest increase

Posted: Updated:

There's been a baby boom in Washington, D.C.

Census figures show the number of children younger than 5 has grown by almost twenty percent to 39,000 over the past 3 years.

The number of children ages 5 to 13 rose 7 percent.

The biggest increases came from white infants and toddlers, which are up 34 percent.

The rise is largely being attributed to new parents in their 30's and early 40's.

There were fewer kids 14 and older during that same time span, suggesting that some parents are moving out of the city when their children reach high school.
