This section is designed to give basic demographic information about Yellow Springs over several decades.

For further comparison, Greene County data, in profile format, are also available on the Internet at:

Features of the Yellow Springs community, which are considered in this section include total population and percent changes over time, income, poverty, occupation, education, gender, age, race, number of households, persons per household, and housing value.

The sections omitted include population migration, persons in household, family households, non-family households, and vital statistics.
