MISSOURI FACTS AND FIGURES “The elderly have increased more consistently and proportionately than any age group.  Persons age 65 and over represented 10% of the population in 1950.  By 2000, their ranks had risen to 13% of the total population and it is estimated that by 2030 this group will represent more than one-fifth of Missourians (21%).  Between 1950 and 2000, the 65-and-over population grew by 85% to 755,000 persons.  This group is projected to grow by an additional 87% between 2000 and 2030 when their numbers are projected to increase to 1.4 million as the baby-boom generation progresses into this age category.”  (Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, 2012)
