Census Bureau: Looking Good, Massachusetts, For Your Age13:13

This article is more than 9 years old.

"Dear Massachusetts,

You rock. You're so smart. And diverse. But you're also getting a little long-in-the-tooth. And you're spending too much time in your car every day.

                                                                                                              Love, the Census Bureau."

That's basically the message the Bay State got on Tuesday, when Washington dumped more data about the U.S. population than on any other day in the Census Bureau's history.

The Boston Globe's Matt Carroll has been crunching the numbers, and he's come up with some pretty revealing stuff about Greater Boston and Massachusetts.
