You will need the latest version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the pdf files found on this page.

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Surveys, this series of AARP Public Policy Institute Fact Sheets examines the American distribution of…

  • Median household income, whether it increased or decreased, and how various age groups fared during the year

  • Poverty, its presence in various age groups, and whether the poverty rate went up or down

  • Health insurance coverage among various age groups, the number of people without health insurance, the age breakdown of uninsured individuals, and whether their total number increased or decreased

These reports of the income, poverty and health Insurance status of Americans of all ages have been published since 1995.
