Growing Older

The biggest story in population over the past few years is the unprecedented number of people entering their senior years thanks to the generation we've come to know as the baby boomers. As they have been doing since they were born, they're going to make an impact on the way all of us live our lives: what helps a community become and remain more attractive to seniors is often also what makes it attractive to younger people. Access to services, transportation choices, parks and activities, for example. In addition to the swelling number of seniors from the baby boom generation, advances in health care mean longer life expectancy for all. Explore the visualization below to see where in our region seniors are clustering, and how Colorado in general compares to other states and their senior populations.
