Statistics On Seniors
By the year 2030, persons over the age of 65 years will represent 24 percent of the total population.
By 2030, the old-age dependency ratio will increase. There will be 60 older adults (and youth) for every 100 people of working age.
Approximately 50% to 70% of older adults are helped exclusively by family caregivers in 14 task categories studied, including using transportation, doing finances, light and heavy house work, shopping and in-home daily living activities.
Approximately 1 in 5 older adults over 80 reported needing more transportation services to get to the doctors or go shopping. Similarly, 43% of service providers cite "travel difficulties" as an obstacle to older adults using existing services.
