[INFOGRAPHIC] The Cost of Aging in America

By 2060, almost 98 million Americans will be 65 and older, which will be more than double the amount reported in 2013. Older Americans will account for more than 20 percent of the U.S. population, an unprecedented number. Why is this the case? Because health advancements related to treatment and prevention of disease are helping people live longer than ever before. But an aging population comes with potentially serious financial ramifications for aging Americans and their families. MPH@GW, the online Master of Public Health from the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, created the following infographic to help explain the economic impact that a growing aging population will have on Americans.
