DID YOU KNOW…
That a recent US census, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper, showed that 65+ age seniors now account for the largest segment, about 13%, of the population. In 2000, it was 12.4% in 1900 the number was 4.1%. That 13% equates to 40.3-million people.
Soon current baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) will further grow the senior ranks. Florida maintains its #1 spot, up 17.3%, with West Virginia, Maine, Pennsylvania and Iowa following. Alaska has the lowest amount of seniors.
