As baby boomers reach retirement age, concerns about the financial stability of Social Security, trends in disability, health care costs, and the supply of caregivers are all at the forefront of conversation. Aging in America focuses on the economic and demographic portrait of the senior population and answers several important questions:
- What is the socio-economic portrait of the senior population in my community?
- How has this population changed over time?
- Where are the most diverse or most homogenous communities?
- What proportion of the senior population is still working?
- What are their incomes?
- Is there affordable housing in this area for seniors?
- How many seniors care for grandchildren?
- What is the incidence of disability by type?
The Decennial Census and annual American Community Survey form the basis for this aging portrait. These critical data sources provide comparable and comprehensive statistics for all communities across the nation.
