Minority Aging Statistical Profiles

ACL has released the 2017 Minority Aging Statistical Profiles. The profiles provide summaries of topical areas such as education, marital status, living arrangements, income and poverty, disability status, health insurance, and participation in Older Americans Act (OAA) programs. The profiles primarily use data from the U.S. Census Bureau to provide an annual summary of the most recent statistics. The 2017 Minority Profiles focus on older adults within the African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian American, and Hispanic American populations.

The 2017 Minority Aging Statistical Profiles were published alongside the 2017 Profile of Older Americans, which focuses on the population aged 65 and older and looks at changing demographics across individual categories, including population, income and poverty, living arrangements, education, health, and caregiving.
