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. Aging in America focuses on the economic and demographic portrait of the senior population and can provide a context for analysis of broader population issues. It provides a range of characteristics of the older population including: age composition, race and Hispanic Origin, educational attainment, living arrangements, veteran status, employment and income, health insurance, disability and housing characteristics.
