Summary
The Baby Boom generation has breached the beginning age of retirement at 65. Today, concerns about the financial stability of Social Security, trends in disability, health care costs, and the supply of caregivers are all driven by the coming explosion in population over the age of 65. The Decennial Census and annual American Community Survey form the basis for this aging portrait. These are critical data sources because they are the only sources that provide comparable and comprehensive statistics for all communities across the nation. Many other survey sources exist that add health care and wellness indicators, but they do not provide the geographic detail coming from the Census Bureau. Aging in America contains information by state, metro area, county, city and congressional district for areas with a population of 65,000 or more.--Publisher description
