Beyond 50: A Report to the Nation on Economic Security

Drawing a definitive picture of the economic status of people after they turn 50, AARP's Beyond 50 report provides an in-depth look at the well-being of more than a quarter of the U.S. population – the 76 million people age 50 and older in 2000. The report appraises past assumptions and identifies new trends and areas of concern.
