Aging: Demographics, Health, and Health Services By Elizabeth Vierck, Kris Hodges
Publisher: Greenwood Press 2003 | 344 Pages | ISBN: 1573565474 | PDF | 33 MB

The "graying of America" is perhaps the most significant demographic event of recent times. Health care and nutrition have improved, and baby boomers reaching middle age and retirement will influence American society both now and in the years to come. Vierck and Hodges present vital statistics on aging Americans in a readable and interesting format, describing trends, offering insights, and providing a framework for understanding the data.
