Take our Aging Initiative site survey and let us know how well this site meets your needs for aging information.
Increased longevity, the large Baby Boomer population and declining birth rates are producing a unique shift in the age structure of the population. This unprecedented shift is happening at all geographic levels and is anticipated to have wide-reaching effects - especially as the changes occur against a backdrop of rapid technological change, uncertainties in the broader economy, climate change, cultural changes between generations, and shrinking government resources. Hennepin County is working to understand how these changing age demographics will affect the county as a service provider, as a geographic and economic region and as a local government agency.
Through reviews of recent research, analysis of current local data and focus groups with county residents, the Hennepin County Aging Initiative aims to help county leaders and stakeholders understand these changes and respond with effective public policy. The Hennepin County Research, Planning and Development Department has created this page to share information compiled by its research analysts and to provide links to valuable information about this important change in our population.
