Reuters – The University of Southern California‘s Price School of Public Policy report’s population projections, based on 2010 Census data, differ markedly from state projections made in 2007 by California‘s Department of Finance.
“The population level previously expected for 2020 is not reached until 2028 (44.1 million). And the 50-million population mark previously anticipated for January 2032 is now expected in January 2046, fully 14 years later,” the report said.
At the same time, the most populous U.S. state will be growing markedly older, with population growth among its seniors ages 65 and older projected to quadruple in the coming 20 years, the report said.
A growing senior population could alter California’s finances and economy dramatically. more> http://is.gd/5UHgdO
