The San Diego Union-Tribune:
Aging Population Caused By Lower Fertility, Longer Lives
The population worldwide is aging rapidly, according to a new study, and the trend is playing out in San Diego County as well. According to the U.S. Census, the global phenomenon is caused by declining fertility rates and increased life expectancy. By 2050, the world's 65-and-older population will increase to almost 1.6 billion people. (Gilchrist, 5/12)
