That a recent US census, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper, showed that 65+ age seniors now account for the largest segment, about 13%, of the population.  In 2000, it was 12.4%   in 1900 the number was 4.1%.  That 13% equates to 40.3-million people.

Soon current baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) will further grow the senior ranks.  Florida maintains its #1 spot, up 17.3%, with West Virginia, Maine, Pennsylvania and Iowa following.  Alaska has the lowest amount of seniors.
