For comparison, and convenient reference, here is a collection of demographic and housing characteristics at the national level. Data pulled as of Q4 2018, reflecting 2000 and 2010 Census data, 2017 Census Estimates, and 2017 5-Year ACS estimates. (Being added as segments are completed)

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.


For seniors 75 and over:
