Now Available: 2018 Profile of Older Americans

May 31, 2019
Source: Administration for Community Living (ACL)

The Profile of Older Americans is an annual summary of critical statistics related to the older population in the United States. Relying primarily on data offered by the U.S. Census Bureau, the Profile illustrates the shifting demographics of Americans age 65 and older. It includes key topic areas such as income, living arrangements, education, health, and caregiving. The 2018 Profile also incorporates a new special section on emergency and disaster preparedness.

Also available on this page are the 2018 data tables (Excel) and reports from previous years. The Profiles are also available in PDF format. View and download the 2018 Profile and more at https://acl.gov/aging-and-disability-in-america/data-and-research/profile-older-americans

Notes: Principal sources of data for the Profile are the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Profile incorporates the latest data available. Not all items are updated on an annual basis. The Profile includes data on the 65 and over population unless otherwise noted. The phrases “older adults” or “older persons” refer to the population age 65 and over. Numbers in this report may not add up due to rounding.
