Moving Forward Through a Shifting Environment: Demographic Trends and Projections Allison Churilla Liuzzi Minnesota Compass, Wilder Research November 7, 2013
Minnesota is officially in a period of rapid demographic change.
POPULATION GROWTH AGING RACIAL AND ETHNIC DIVERSITY
Our population will grow, but growth will be uneven.
Where will we grow? Exurban counties Central and southern MN Population decline in southwestern MN Retrieved from MN Compass: Demographics > Population
Our older adult population will double by 2030.
OLDER ADULT POPULATION WILL SOON EXCEED SCHOOL-AGED POPULATION Retrieved from MN Compass: Demographics > Age Roughly 169 more aging into retirement every day OLDER ADULT POPULATION WILL SOON EXCEED SCHOOL-AGED POPULATION
Rates of volunteerism are highest among middle-aged and older adults, but also among teens Retrieved from MN Compass: Civic engagement > Volunteerism
Today, there are approximately 284,000 volunteers age 65+ in Minnesota… 284,000 volunteers age 65 and older * 86hours per person per year * $20per hour $488 million
By 2040, approximately 548,000 volunteers age 65+ in Minnesota… 548,000 volunteers age 65 and older * 86hours per person per year * $20per hour $943 million
One in four residents will be Persons Of Color by 2030.
POPULATION OF COLOR IS GROWING FASTER IN MINNESOTA THAN IN THE U.S. Population of Color in MN more than tripled US doubled Retrieved from MN Compass: Demographics > Race 18% 37% Population of Color is growing faster in Minnesota than in the U.S.
Currently, levels of volunteerism are lower among Populations Of Color Retrieved from MN Compass: Civic engagement > Volunteerism 39% 38% 20% 17%
If we increased volunteerism among Populations Of Color to 38% (the state average), we would have … 158,000 additional volunteers in Minnesota today 283,000 additional volunteers in Minnesota in 2035
Minnesota is a great state for volunteerism! Among the 50 states: 4 th for volunteering (38%) 3 rd for Baby Boomers who volunteer (42%) 2 nd for older adults who volunteer (39%)
