Aging Data Profiles of Minnesota’s Population

The Minnesota Department of Human Services’ website has a very cool new tool that provides demographic and service data for regional, statewide and county levels.

The profiles include the following demographic and service data points. Each point is a separate tab on the dashboard:

  • AGE – total population by age
  • DIVERSITY – total population by race and ethnicity
  • LIVING ALONE – persons age 65+ living alone
  • POVERTY – persons age 65+ in poverty
  • DEPENDENCY – old-age dependency ratio
  • CAREGIVER – family caregiver ratio
  • SPENDING – long-term services and supports expenditures
  • HIGHER NEEDS – persons served with higher needs
  • UTILIZATION – nursing home bed utilization

Here’s the link to the Minnesota Department of Human Services Aging Data Profiles dashboard.
