What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of the population that is over age 65.
Why this is important: 
The age structure of a population is important in planning for the future of a community, particularly for schools, community centers, health care, and child care. A population with more youth will have greater education and child care needs, while an older population may have greater health care needs. Older people are also far more likely to vote, making them an important political force.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value.
