No segment of the population is changing as much as older Americans. The expanding age group is becoming increasingly sophisticated as it fills with well educated Boomers. The economic downturn has hurt many older Americans and it has devastated millions of Boomers making an understanding of the older market increasingly vital to both businesses and government. This work tells you what you need to know. The sixth edition of Older Americans includes the latest statistics on the health, living arrangements, incomes, spending, and wealth of the 55 or older age group. It presents labor force data for 2008, revealing the rising labor force participation of men and women aged 55 and older. It contains new data on their health. New population projections are in this volume, along with data on household wealth from the Survey of Consumer Finances. Also new to this edition is an Attitudes chapter with data from the recently released 2008 General Social Survey. This work is designed for easy use. It is divided into eleven chapters, organized alphabetically: Attitudes, Education, Health, Housing, Income, Labor Force, Living Arrangements, Population, Spending, Time Use, and Wealth.
