|Age Group||2000||2010||2017||3-Yr Avg Annual Growth Rate|

The current ratio of adult children (Age 45 to 64) to Seniors (75 and over) is 4.0-to-1 — this has been falling 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.
