Apr 18, 2013

Approximately 2.3 million women in California are 65 years old or over. Another 3.3 million California women are between the ages of 50 and 65. These women, born before or during the baby boom, represent 15 percent of California’s population and potentially face health issues associated with aging. This Short Subject by the California Research Bureau present some of the health issues they experience, compares their experiences to same aged women nationally, reports preventative strategies some employ, and focuses on how health issues may differ for California women according to their race/ethnic categories.
