Population & Age
|Age Group||2000||2010||2018||3-Yr Avg Annual Growth Rate|
|45 to 64||61,952,636||81,489,445||83,904,335||0.0%|
|65 to 74||18,390,986||21,713,429||30,492,316||3.6%|

The currently (2018) estimated ratio of adult children (population age 45 to 64) to Seniors (75 and over) is 3.8-to-1 — this has been falling slowly since 2010, and is expected to fall to about 2-to-1 in the next 10 years. This will drive significant shifts in how care needs to be supplied, as this also suggests the demand for *Caregivers* will roughly double relative to all other employment.
For seniors 75 and over:
