Projected Future Growth of Older Population

ACL's work has never been more important.

There are 65 million people age 60 and older. All but a tiny percentage of them live in non-institutional settings, as do nearly 57 million people with disabilities. Both populations are growing, and older Americans are one of the fastest-growing demographics in the country. By 2020, there will be more than 77 million people over the age of 60.
