Most older Americans living longer and better
HealthDay/Washington Post, March 28, 2008
Older Americans are living longer than ever and enjoying better health and financial security, although there continue to be lingering disparities between racial and ethnic groups, according to a report. Edward Sondik, director of the National Center for Health Statistics, said in a statement that the report comes at "a critical time." Sondnik added that "as the baby boomers age and America's older population grows larger and more diverse, community leaders, policymakers and researchers have an even greater need for reliable data to understand where older Americans stand today and what they may face tomorrow."
