8 School Aged Children The estimates of the number of children aged 5 to 17 years are based solely on the accumulation of the number of births over a thirteen-year period. For example, the number of 5 to 17 year olds in 1963 would consist of the accumulation of the number of births from 1946 to Obviously, this does not account for mortality, nor does it adjust for the number of children who moved into or out of an area. The largest estimated number of school aged children was in 1964 (2,890) 1993 was another high point (1,831) Since 1993, the estimated number of children has been declining steadily with a projected number of 1,117 in 2018
