The population of adults over the age of 60 has grown significantly in Illinois since 2000, increasing from 1.9 million to 2.8 million, making up 22 percent of the total population of Illinois. The population of adults over 60 is expected to increase even further to around 3.6 million by 2030, making up 25 percent of the state’s population.
