Profile AmericaMonday, May 13thAs Americans live longer, the problems of financing their retirement and paying their medical bills continue to make headlines.  But the growing number of healthy seniors also means opportunities.  Both the problems and opportunities are in the spotlight in May — it's Older Americans Month.  There are just over 41 million people aged 65 and older in the U.S., over 13 percent of the population.  By the year 2060, the number of elderly is projected to be 92 million.  About one-in-six seniors is still in the labor force, and just under one-in-four is a military veteran.  More than eight-out-of-10 older Americans own their homes. You can find more facts about America's people, places and economy from the American Community Survey at www.census.gov.
