    • 29. Rapid Growth in Elderly Population is Inevitable
      • Population aging is primarily due to:
        • Declining fertility rates
        • Increasing life expectancy
      • Population aging can be measured by:
        • Average or median age of the population
        • Elderly dependent ratio:
      Population age 65 and above Population between 20 and 64
    • 30. 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% Under 20 Above 65 Share of Population Growth by Dependent Group 11.1% 29.7% 27.5% 31.4% 1975-2000 2000-2025

    • 40. Implications for Long Term Planning
    • 41. Trends and Forecasts Suggest:
      • The region’s economy will likely grow very slowly for a very long time after 2010, and will be prone to recession !
      • Living standards and per capita income will rise more slowly .
      • The region, like the U.S., will face fiscal challenges.
      • Education and workforce training policies should encourage increasing labor force supply, and put more emphasis on on older workers.
    • 42. Trends and Forecasts Suggest:
      • To ensure that long term planning is on track to address “who are we becoming and what challenges are ahead,” future trends—planners and decision-makers must take into account not simply growth projections, but the components and characteristics of the forecasts (e.g., ethnic and age cohort distributions ).
    • 43.
      • It is prudent to conduct systematic evaluation of long-range transportation plan components in order to assess impacts of slow future economic growth.
      • Revenue forecasts need to take into account the challenges resulting from population aging and demographic shifts.
      • Transportation demand forecast models need adjustment to reflect the higher proportion of elderly households in the future.
      • Long-range transportation planning should emphasize safety, security, and accessibility goals-which which will become more important to an aging society.

    • 44. Labor Force Training & Workforce Investment
      • The region’s economy will likely grow very slowly for a very long time after 2010, and will post great challenges to the region.
      • The core of this concern is originated from population aging and lack of labor force growth.
      • Labor force training and workforce investment play critical roles in addressing these challenges.
      • Education is the key.
      • In the long term, efforts should be targeted on population groups with the lowest labor force participation rates, the least educational attainment, and highest unemployment rates.
      • The earning disparities between gender, age, and race/ethnicity should be carefully investigated to correct likely “inequality”.
      • Immigration policy needs to be adjusted to attract high-quality labor force.
    • 45. What Are the New Demographics?
      • Tomorrow’s elderly will behave differently from today’s elderly--Baby Boomers will be different from their parents. But how?
      • Some of the elderly workers will stay longer in the labor force. But to what extent?
      • Will Baby Boomers age in place? What are their next moves?
      • Where will young Hispanics and others in the workforce be able to afford apartments and starter homes in our supply constrained, high priced housing markets?
    • 46. What Are the New Demographics?
      • Will immigrants continue to cram into crowded quarters as they come to the region for jobs?
      • Are mixed use developments an emerging trend driven by new lifestyle demands of empty-nest boomers in their mid 50s?
      • Will the different lifestyle and housing needs of aging Baby Boomers and young Hispanics shape development patterns and affect voting decisions on land use issues?
    • 47. Summary
      • Demography is destiny!
      • The region’s population is aging and will be more diversified
      • Population growth by age cohorts provides valuable information on timing and phasing of future growth challenges
      • The slow growth of employment after 2010 is particularly worrisome, the region needs collectively to communicate this demographic trends, to build up consensus, and to assess the likely impacts in every aspects of our life and regional planning
    • 48. Summary
      • How do we assure social equity goal achievement and a healthy economic structure for the region?
      • An aging society will also generate new opportunities--different growing industries, ethnic markets, and communities
      • Population aging will pose challenges and cause crisis, however, challenges and crisis can be met with a reasonable set of policy choices and early-on planning.
