C-Share of the Population 85+, in 2015 and 2050, by State
Summary of Publication
The number of people age 85-plus will roughly triple in the U.S. from 2015 to 2060. This demographic phenomenon will have a significant impact on every aspect of our society, ranging from our health care system to the economy. People age 85-plus are the group most likely to need long-term services and supports to help them with everyday tasks. They not only have higher rates of disability than younger people, but they are also more likely to be living alone, without a spouse or other family member to provide them with assistance.
