21 Possible Impact of Aging Trends on Virginia’s Transportation Sector

22 In 2003, Virginia’s population age 60 & over represented 15.6% of the state total, compared to Florida’s 22.4% (1 st in the Nation) Based on national projections, Virginia’s age 60+ population share (24.3%) in 2025 will be roughly comparable to Florida’s current age structure (persons age 60+ =22.4% of total in 2003).
