This information in this section of the Aging Texas Well website brings together a variety of demographic and statistical information about the growing aging population.
Within this area you will find Texas specific data from the Texas State Data Center and Office of the Demographer, the State Unit on Aging Plan Fiscal Years 2011-2013, and the Health and Human Services System Strategic Plan for FY 2011-2015.
National websites with aging statistics by age groups, sex, ethnicity, living arrangements (including long-term care and independent living), income, housing, and poverty rates are found in several sources. These include: AARP Across the States: Profiles of Long Term Care and Independent Living; Administration on Aging: A Profile of Older Americans: 2010; New Realities of an Older America, and the U.S. Census Bureau.
