The number of Minnesotans turning 65 in this decade (about 285,000) will be greater than the past four decades combined.
Around 2020, Minnesota's 65+ population is expected to eclipse the 5-17 K-12 population, for the first time in history.
The total number of older adults (65+) is anticipated to double between 2010 and 2030, according to our projections. By then, more than 1 in 5 Minnesotans will be an older adult, including all the Baby Boomers.
