Did you know?
Seniors age 60 and over were only 21.3 percent of Cuyahoga County’s population in 2010. By 2030, this group’s population share is projected to grow to 31 percent, outnumbering youth under 20 years old. This projected proportion is about equal to that of the Northeast Ohio region (31.9 percent), but is higher than that of the state (28.7 percent).
About 282,513 people age 60 and over currently call Cuyahoga County home.
