Virginia Age Ready Indicators Benchmark Survey Report

The Old Dominion is getting older. There are approximately 900,000 people over the age of 65 currently living in Virginia, and this number is expected to double to ~1.8 million by 2030. In 20 years, the senior population (65 and older) will make up 20% of the total population of Virginia.

In preparation for the doubling of Virginia’s senior population, the Older Dominion Partnership is compiling the most comprehensive array of information and insights on the Commonwealth’s older residents and aging Baby Boomers. This includes both secondary and primary research coordinated by the ODP’s Shared Database Work Group, led by Richard Lindsay, M.D., University of Virginia. The cornerstone of this shared database initiative is the 2011 Virginia Age Ready Indicators Benchmark Survey, conducted by the Southeastern Institute of Research (SIR).
