By 2035, Americans age 65 and older are forecast to outnumber kids for the first time.

The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the population of older adults will surpass children by almost two million in 2035, growing nearly five million to 78 million by 2035. The growth rate of the population of children, those under age 18, is expected to be slower.

This demographic transition is in the developing stages for the U.S., while the trend in other countries, notably Japan and some nations in Europe, is already well underway.
