What is this Indicator?

Why this is important: 
The age structure of a population is important in planning for the future of a community, particularly for schools, community centers, health care, and child care. A population with more youth will have greater education and child care needs, while an older population may have greater health care needs.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value.
