The elderly Japanese-American population in California could serve as a model for caring for future aging populations of all ethnicities in the state and across the U.S., according to a study by researchers at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, Payers & Providersreports.
According to the study, nearly 25% of Japanese-Americans are over age 65, twice that of the U.S. population.
The study noted that over the next 35 years, the proportion of the U.S. population over age 65 will reach the current percentage of Japanese-Americans at that age.
