TO THE READER



The older population of Florida, as well as of
the United States, is growing faster than the popu-
lation as a whole. The increasing number and pro-
portion of the elderly reflect demographic changes
that are already having pervasive influences on the
economy and on public policy regarding health and
other supportive human services in the state. These
trends underscore the need for information to re-
veal the constantly changing makeup of the older
population, the economic and social conditions con-
fronting older people in different regions of the
state, and the effectiveness with which public and
private resources are being mobilized to adjust to
these changes.
This publication is a result of an on-going
program to maintain and to disseminate current
information on older people in Florida. The data
are gathered from many sources, including federal
documents, survey data, state agencies, other
public information files, and private reports and
records. And while every effort has been made to
report uniform time periods, age-race-sex
groupings, and geographical units, our reliance on
these multiple sources makes such consistency
difficult to achieve. Nevertheless, the data on
population, income, employment, housing, trans-
portation, social insurance, health, vital statistics,
and other social indicators fit together to portray
the overall picture of the elderly in this state.







Special emphasis has been given to find or to
develop where possible up-to-date information at the
county level. These tabulations should be espe-
cially useful to program planners and project
managers. The users of this information are
cautioned where appropriate regarding the pitfalls
of estimates made at different levels of aggregation.
Besides the classification of data at different levels
of aggregation, time series or historical information
is reported as it is available. These data show
trends or changes over time and put into perspec-
tive some of the current information that is
reported.
The major source of information is the United
States Census of 1970. It provides detailed
statistics on the social and economic characteristics
of older people in Florida, its counties, and major
standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSAs). In
any instance where more up-to-date data are avail-
able, as a result of special surveys or estimates,
they have been provided. Information compiled
from noncensus sources are for the most recent
period for which the data were available when this
publication was being prepared. When the data are
for other than a calendar year, the title of the
table may specify a fiscal year, the period from
July 1 to June 30. Some current estimates
(especially at the county level) rely on trend
extrapolations from both the 1960 and 1970
Censuses.
The volume is divided into nine major sections:
Population, Income and Poverty, Employment, Vital
Statistics and Health, Housing, Transportation,
Social Insurance, Quality of Life, and Health,
Education and Cultural Services. At the beginning
of each section is a brief commentary on the data,
special definitions, and sources of information.
At this point, special acknowledgements are
necessary to individual staff members of the Center
for Gerontological Studies and the Bureau of Eco-
nomic and Business Research for their respective
contributions to this publication. Frances W.
Terhune, Associate in Research at the Bureau of







Economic and Business Research, receives special
thanks for her valuable advice. Doreen M.
Willmeroth coordinated staff activities and super-
vised the page layouts and graphics. Susan S.
Floyd was responsible for statistical computations
and for coding and auditing the data, assisted by
Ava Hagan and student assistants Maria Arevalo,
Bernadine Cashe, Steve Cook, Deborah Egnatowich,
Joy Haddocks, Wanda Kenchin, Lisa Marsh, Sandra
Molnar, Waymond Norman, Janice Randolph,
Gwendolyn Ritter, Ann Roberson, Grace Scarboro,
David Schlottman, and Donna St. Angelo. Graduate
Assistants Randy Forde, Daniel Mendicino, and
Joann Werfel participated in the search for and com-
pilation of data. Daniel Mendicino and Mona Nieland
were responsible for paste-up. Evan Eldridge,
Genevieve Floyd, and Teri Blunt were responsible
for computer processing. Phyllis Lee, Nicole
Fortunas, Nellie Widener, and John Wright key-
punched and verified the data. Alene Williams and
Dorothy Evans made final corrections on the tables.
Felix Muehlner, Research Associate, was responsible
for the survey and collection of data sources and
for making the statistical computations for the In-
come estimates.
This publication is part of a series of reports
of the Data Bank on Aging in Florida administered
by the Consortium of University Centers on Aging
and sponsored by the Florida Legislature. The
Consortium consists currently of established geron-
tology centers from the University of Florida,
Florida State University, University of South
Florida, and the University of Miami. The produc-
tion of this document was financially supported in
part by the state Data Bank funds of the Con-
sortium.

POPULATION


Population analysis involves both the current
number and composition or distribution of character-
istics (e.g., age, sex, race) of people in an area
and the changes over time in the number and
composition of people in an area. Births, deaths,
and migration in and out of an area are the primary
bases of population size, composition, and change.
In Florida migration has played the most important
role in population change, particularly in the
changing age composition of the state. This change
is currently reflected in the fact that Florida now
has the highest percentage of persons aged 65 and
over in the country and 'is rapidly moving towards
having the greatest absolute number of persons in
this age group by the turn of the century.
The tables presented in this section report
statistics on the growth, distribution, and basic
characteristics of older people in Florida. Emphasis
has been placed on developing the most reliable
current estimates of population at the state and
county levels. Historical and total population (all
ages) figures are included for purposes of com-
parison. Also, both age groups 60 and over and 65
and over are reported where the data allow. The
complete decennial censuses from 1960 and 1970 and
the Current Population Reports of the United States
Bureau of the Census serve as the principal
sources of information. Some data come from the
20, 15, or 5 percent samples of the 1970 census.
Some definitions and limitations of the data
must be noted. Individuals are considered residents








of an area if they have designated this community
as their usual place of residence, although it may
not be their legal residence, voting residence, or
domicile. The term standard metropolitan statistical
area (SMSA) refers to a county or group of con-
tiguous counties which contain at least one central
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
Population statistics for intercensal years for
Florida may be found in Florida Estimates of
Population and Population Studies, both published
annually by the Population Division of the Bureau
of Economic and Business Research, University of
Florida. Estimates of the 1977 county population by
age, race, and sex were prepared by Bart B. Lewis
of the Population Division staff. They were calcu-
lated using a cohort-component methodology at the
county level. First, the1970 Census population was
advanced 7.25 years and adjusted for observed
births and deaths. The difference between this
"survived" population and the July 1, 1977, total
population estimate is the change in population due
to net migration. This net migration total is then
partitioned into effects for each age, race, and sex
group based on the observed effects of net migra-
tion in that county between 1960 and 1970.
The impact of migration on the population of
Florida cannot be overemphasized. Any current
estimate of population, particularly at lower levels
of aggregation (i.e. county), must be considered
only in light of assumptions about migration trends.
This is especially the case in some tables in this
section that assume that the net effect of migration
on the age, race, and sex components of a county's
population was similar between 1970 and 1977 to the
change between 1960 and 1970. Figures for age,
race, and/or sex may be accurate or may over- or
underestimate age-race-sex components for a given
county to the degree to which this assumption holds
for that county.

2/ DATA INCORPORATE INFORMATION COLLECTED IN SPECIAL CENSUSES SINCE 1970.
CHANGES IN NET MIGRATION PATTERNS IN PASCO MAKE ITS ESTIMATE LESS RELIABLE THAN FOR
OTHER COUNTIES.

NOTE: THE ASSUMPTION THAT THE NET EFFECT OF MIGRATION ON THE AGE, RACE, AND SEX
COMPONENTS OF A COUNTY'S POPULATION WAS SIMILAR BETWEEN 1970 AND 1977 TO THE CHANGE
OBSERVED BETWEEN 1960 AND 1970 IS IMPLICIT IN THE METHODOLOGY USED TO COMPUTE THESE

INCOME


This section includes statistics on money in-
come and poverty status for aged units (individ-
uals, households, or families) in the state and
counties of Florida. Current money income usually
consists of the sum of all income received before
taxes (during the year preceding the survey) by
an aged unit from selected sources. Major sources
of income for the elderly usually include in order of
importance: earnings/social security, asset income,
private pensions, supplemental security income, and
government employee pensions. Money receipts
exclude income from sale of nonbusiness-related
property (real, stocks and bonds), bank deposit
withdrawals, loans, tax refunds, gifts, and lump-
sum inheritance or insurance benefits. For statis-
tics on family or household income, the combined
income of all members of each family (household) is
treated as a single amount. For income of un-
related individuals, such as widows, the classifi-
cation is by the amount of their own total income.
Income data from the 1976 Survey of Income
and Education (SIE) of the U.S. Bureau of the
Census have been added to decennial information
sources to provide current estimates of income in
the state of Florida and at the county level. Esti-
mates derived from the SIE were adjusted for
selected sex/age groups to correct for sampling
error by using calculations of intercensal income
trends at the state and county levels.












Poverty thresholds define levels of income that
divide families (households) of differing composi-
tion, place, and time into the poor and near poor.
Specifically, the modified Orshansky thresholds,
adopted by the Federal Interagency Committee in
1969 and updated annually on the basis of the
income sample of the U.S. Bureau of the Census
Current Population Survey, vary by (1) family size
and composition, (2) sex and age of family head,
and are adjusted for (3) annual changes in the
Consumer Price Index (CPI) and (4) differences
between farm and honfarm residence (see P-60
Series of Current Population reports for annual
updates). Like the poverty thresholds, the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) budgets for
retired couples are standards based on the esti
mated costs of required consumer items for aged
couples in different urban locations. The BLS
figures appear to be different from the poverty
thresholds because they are determined only for
large cities and assume rental housing instead of
home ownership, thus resulting in relatively higher
cut-off amounts.
