To provide adequate information on older persons in America, I have included not only Social Security statistics but also those that provide general and health-related statistics and data on America's aging population.
General Aging Statistics
Aging Statistics (Administration on Aging)
Provides a selection of data on which to focus, as well as links to the AGing Integrated Database, "an on-line query system based on ACL-related data files and surveys, and includes population characteristics from the Census Bureau for comparison purposes. The four options or paths through AGID provide different levels of focus and aggregation of the data – from individual data elements within Data-at-a-Glance to full database access within Data Files" (AGID).
Healthy Aging Data Portfolio (CDC)
Allows you to tailor the indicators of aging Americans on which you'd like to focus.
Provided by AgingStats.gov, this report focuses on indicators to detail the lives of older Americans and focuses on health status, economics, healthcare, and more.
