The Aging Population in the United States

The U.S. population is aging. Today, there are more than 46 million older adults age 65 and older living in the U.S.; by 2050, that number is expected to grow to almost 90 million. Between 2020 and 2030 alone, the time the last of the baby boom cohorts reach age 65, the number of older adults is projected to increase by almost 18 million. This means by 2030, 1 in 5 Americans is projected to be 65 years old and over.

Statistics Shows:
Americans over the age of 65 will double
By 2030 about 72.1 million older persons in the U.S
CNA’s demand is growing at a 11% rate through 2026
That works out to 177,700 new CNA jobs!
