Significant demographic changes are transforming the structure of today's American population to include a much larger proportion of older people. Factors such as immigration and changes in marriage, cohabitation, divorce, and childbearing are all affecting the roles of older people and the way in which older people are financially, emotionally, and psychologically supported. These changes also affect the size and composition of the working-age population that provide this support.

Through the review of recent literature, the authors examine the implications of these changes and the ways in which they affect age distribution, immigration, increasing longevity, and family change. The effects of experience on cognitive function in old age as well as individual resilience in societal context and the physical and economic outcomes of effective self-regulation across the adult lifespan, including public policy considerations, consequences of the aging baby boomer population and their increasing longevity, and the decrease in the population of people expected to support baby boomers, are also included.

Features include:
Recent review of literature about demographic changes likely to affect the elderly
Specific consequences of demographic changes to today's elderly and elderly of future
Possible mechanisms for explaining how demographic change can modify individual aging processes
