New figures show a high number of new arizona homes are still sitting empty.

Builders added too many homes, then the recession hit.

The U.S. Census Bureau says arizona added more the 650,000 new homes between 2000 and 2010.

Currently one out of ten homes remain vacant.

And women now outnumber men in arizona.

And we're all getting older. The median age is up to 35.9. That's up by more than a year in the past decade.

Seventeen percent of arizonans are at least 62-years-old while the younger population decreased.
