The aging of Upstate New York
The United States is in the midst of a powerful demographic trend: the aging of its population. Advances in medical technology and lifestyle changes have lengthened life expectancies while birth rates have declined. Moreover, the elderly share of the population will rise quickly once the 76 million-strong baby-boom generation - those born between 1946 and 1964 - begins turning 65 in just a few years. The rapid aging of the population is expected to have profound effects on all aspects of American society. This issue of Upstate New York At-a-Glance outlines the pattern of aging in the region and suggests some implications.

Journal Article
A brain drain or an insufficient brain gain?
Upstate New York's weak population and labor force growth in recent years has raised concerns about a loss of educated workers. Indeed, the region has seen a net outflow of college-educated people. This issue of Upstate New York At-a-Glance finds that this net outflow reflects a low rate of in-migration to the region, rather than an unusually high rate of out-migration.
