This twelfth edition of Older Americans Information Resource is designed for one of America’s largest growing populations, with resources to help aging Americans lead happy and productive lives. It includes 10,000 listings, two glossaries, and three indexes, and is a repeat winner of the National Mature Media Award, recognized as “the best in advertising, marketing and educational materials for older adults.”

Following the Introduction, a detailed Profile of Older Americans: 2016 from the Administration on Aging defines America’s seniors by 14 categories, including future growth, income, employment and care giving. This 16-page report is enhanced by tables, charts, and maps. Highlights of the report include:
