Newark, a town in Delaware, has a population of approximately 33,000. Young adults (15-24) should fit right in, as they account for an above-average percentage of the population, while middle-aged professionals are less well-represented. Overall, the city's residents, with an average age of just under 34, are decidedly younger than most cities in Delaware, ranking as the second-youngest municipality in the state. A narrow majority of residents own their homes (54%) as opposed to renting (46%) in Newark. With an average rent of $1,295 per month, exceeding the state average by $202 a month, relatively high rent costs could be playing a role in the higher levels of ownership.
