According to a survey by the nonprofit Downtown Fort Worth Inc., the most likely person to live in the downtown area is a woman ages 25 to 34, and the most common reason to live there is lifestyle.

The majority of the residents, 61.6 percent are unmarried, but this is down from three years ago when the figure was 65 percent.
