Getting Old in New Jersey and Elsewhere

This survey from AARP – Quick Health Facts 2012 – presents selected data on these topics as it pertains to the aging population: demographics, health expenditure and financing, health status 50+, and prevention and utilization. State-level data is compared to the national averages. All fifty states are included, and the previous reports are online as well. Another AARP report worth consulting is Across the States: Profiles of Long-Term Services and Supports. Additional relevant sources are: 2012 Older Americans: Key Indicators of Well-Being (Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics); Medicare (Kaiser Family Foundation); and New Jersey Division of Aging Services.
