Missouri Senior Report

Report provides county-by-county data on Missouri’s senior population

As baby boomers age, older Americans will make up a growing proportion of the population. By 2030, about one in five Missourians will be 65 or older. This trend has important implications for communities on issues such as housing, health care, infrastructure, transportation and social services.

The Missouri Senior Report, produced by MU Extension’s Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis in collaboration with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, presents county-by-county data on older Missourians to help policymakers, health care providers, businesses, families and others make informed decisions about plans and priorities.

A newly redesigned website at www.MissouriSeniorReport.org lets users easily browse data, compare differences over time or from county to county, and generate custom charts and maps. Users also can download data as spreadsheet files.
