  • Department of Elder Affairs

    With more than 4.9 million elders age 60 and older, Florida currently ranks first in the nation in the percentage of its citizens who are elders, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Currently, elders make up 24% of the state's population, and this is expected to grow to 35% by 2030. There are more than 1.7 million Floridians age 75 and older, and the population group 100 and older is Florida's fastest growing age group by percentage. With more elders living within our borders than the populations of 17 other states and the District of Columbia combined, Florida's future is linked to the financial, health and physical security of its elder population.
