The United States is an Aging Nation
These population projections are why AARP has a livable communities initiative
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 1 of every 5 people in the United States — or 20 percent of the nation's population — will be age 65 or older by 2030.
By 2034, people age 65 or over will outnumber children age 17 or younger.
