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 the population of those 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This updated single-volume reference presents demographic data covering the 2014 American Community Survey for the general population, with special breakouts for groups over 50. Separated into 10 parts, the book's topics include race and ethnicity, income, health insurance, housing, and more. Each section begins with a helpful introduction with graphics and contains five tables, breaking the provided data down to the 'States' 'Counties,' 'Places,' 'Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Area,' and '114th Congressional District' levels. The resource also provides a user-friendly overview of the ACS and how it differs from the census as well as details on accessing ACS data online. * Booklist *
This resource in the publisher's `County and City Extra' series consists primarily of tables presenting a total of 130 data items that collectively describe the aging population in the US during the early 2010s. Like another recent Bernan publication by Scardamalia (president, RLS Demographics), Millennials in America, tables are organized by subject areas, among them race and ethnicity, household relationship, educational attainment and veteran status, employment, income, disability status, health insurance, and housing. Tables in each section are preceded by a brief narrative that highlights differences in data across geographic areas. The primary data source is the 2014 American Community Survey at http://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/, the annual Census Bureau survey that replaced the long form administered as part of the decennial census. Geographic areas for which data are provided include states, metropolitan/micropolitan areas, Congressional districts, counties, and cities with population of 65,000 or more. Especially noteworthy is the concise description of the American Community Survey and how the data contained there can be accessed for researchers' needs. The strength of this resource is the data. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. All libraries. All levels. * CHOICE *
