GUILFORD COUNTY — Guilford County’s retirees are overwhelmingly white and becoming more numerous, while the working- and school-age populations have proportionately more Black, Hispanic and Asian residents than ever, according to the 2020 Census Demographic and Housing Characteristics data released Thursday.
