Profile of Older New Yorkers
The Profile of Older New Yorkers created by the New York City Department for the Aging is a comprehensive resource for those interested in this fastest-growing segment of the City’s Population. The Profile provides demographic data by borough and community district. A summary of the data precedes each borough table and highlights borough demographics “at a glance.” Column headings indicate types of demographics and rows present the demographic data for each Community District in the borough. Borough-wide and City-wide data is also presented for comparison.
Among key demographic data, the Profile includes:
- Information about mobility and self-care impairment, including the total number of persons 60 years of age or older in each CD who are mobility and/or self-care impaired;
- Poverty among older New Yorkers based on New York Center for Economic Opportunity (CEO) data and Federal Poverty Level data;
- The number of CD residents 60 years of age or older who have received Food Stamps in the past 12 months;
- Educational attainment of older CD residents; and
