Demographic Characteristics of Older Adults in Virginia

Twenty-five Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) serve the 1.8+ million Virginians aged 60+ across the Commonwealth. AAAs, which were started in 1973 as a result of a federal Older Americans Act, provide critical services to older adults across the country. AAAs depend on timely and relevant demographic data to make informed decisions about how to best serve their populations. These data briefs aim to assist the AAAs in understanding some of the basic demographic characteristics of older adults in Virginia as a whole, and in each of Virginia's Planning and Service Areas (PSAs).
