States Working to Address Growing, Changing Aging Population

October 11, 2017

U.S. News & World Report (10/11, Soergel, 1.73M) discusses how states are addressing the US’ growing and changing aging population, saying they are taking into consideration that many older adults are more inclined to continue working and participate in active lifestyles than previous generations. The article says U.S. News’ Best States for Aging ranking examined how states are handling aging, placing Colorado at first, “followed by Maine, Hawaii, Iowa and South Dakota to round out the top five.” The article heavily cites CDC data, noting the centers find that life expectancy now is “considerably higher than it was decades ago.”
