  • The 65+ age group accounted for 16% of the US population in 2018, or over 50 million people, and is expected to grow by 40%, or 20 million, through 2030.
  • Spending by senior households amounted to $1.6 trillion in 2017, up 10% year over year.
  • Of the $1.6 trillion, $1.0 trillion was spent by households headed by those between the ages of 65 and 74, while the remaining $0.6 trillion was spent by households headed by those aged 75 and over.
