Aging...Opportunity or Problem?
FACT: In 2000, 25,740 persons 60 years of age or older lived in Durham County (12.5% of the total population- 203,295). By 2020 that figure is expected to increase by 80.5%, to 46,458 (18% of the population- 256,661). Total population is expected to increase by only 26%.
FACT: In 2010, the oldest of the large baby boom generation celebrated their 65th birthday. These boomers were the first wave of more than 2 million North Carolinians born between 1946 and 1964, who today represent nearly a third of NC population.
FACT: By 2030, there will be about 70 million older persons, more than twice their number in 1999. People 65+ will represent almost 13% of the population in the year 2000 but are expected to grow to be 20% of the population by 2030.
Technology helps seniors connect to loved ones, friends, healthcare professionals, and so much more. The CSC is dedicated to improving basic computer skills to help seniors make the most of this opportunity.
