North Dakota's Aging Population

The NDSU Extension Service has partnered with the Center for Social Research at NDSU to publish a new aging population brief, North Dakota’s Aging Population: Profile and Trends of Seniors Ages 65 and Older. The 4-page document presents a picture of the health, finances, and well-being of adults ages 65 and older in North Dakota. The brief focuses on well-being indicators including population, health care, economics, health risks and behaviors, and health status, as well as cognitive impairment and caregiving. The document can be accessed at:

Additional information related to North Dakota’s aging population can be accessed on a new on-line resource in the state, North Dakota Compass.  The North Dakota Compass is a social indicators project that measures trends in topic areas such as children and youth, economy, health, housing, workforce, demographics, aging and more.  It gives policymakers, business and community leaders, and concerned individuals who live and work in ND a common foundation to identify, understand, and act on community issues.  Visit the website at:
