Older Adults Vs. Children Population Charts
For the first time in the history of the world, the number
of seniors is beginning to exceed the number of children.
In rural Nevada and Sierra Counties, this shift already happened in the year 2000. In Sacramento County, the State has projected there will be more older people than young people by 2030. Yolo County is expected to follow suit in 2035. Placer, Sutter and Yuba Counties have larger proportions of kids, delaying this overall trend.
By 2045, California as a whole will have more seniors than children.
The Dual Challenge
Preserving Services for the Oldest Old Today;
Planning for the Elderly Baby Boomers of Tomorrow
We know that the Baby Boom dramatically changed America during the latter half of the 20th century. But, what do we really know about how the Boomer Generation will change what it means to grow old as we move ahead into the 21st century? The Dual Challenge attempts to answer that question based upon the best, most reliable information available for our region.
