New Projections and Forecasts for the U.S. Population

As one of its earliest efforts, the Network is developing a set of new projections for the future U.S. population based on a variety of scenarios that may prolong or reduce active life expectancy and also projections that examine the future changes in subsets of the population as defined by socioeconomic status and other characteristics. These projections and forecasts will importantly inform the policy work of the Network going forward.
