Ohio’s Changing Population

Ohio is the seventh most populous state, but its population is projected to grow by less than .01% over the next 30 years. The population composition of the state is shifting older: by 2025, more than 1 in 4 Ohioans will be age 60 and older.

The Scripps Gerontology Center researches aging and disability-related population trends in Ohio to inform planning, policy, and economic development at the state and county level. We’re here to help you understand and visualize how Ohio’s older population will change over the next several decades at the state and county levels. With good information, communities can plan for their projected populations of older persons and persons with a disability.
