Policy Relevant Research for an Aging Florida

The mission of the Florida Policy Exchange Center on Aging is to provide timely, high-quality research and policy analysis to public officials, program administrators, and other stakeholders concerned with Florida’s aging population; specifically assessing the health and well-being of older adults. As part of the School of Aging Studies at the University of South Florida, it brings together faculty and students on projects that promote age-friendly principles, engage the community and further the research and education mission of the USF System.

FPECA FPECA Centers FPECA Public Policy Reports and Briefs

To encourage policymakers, business owners and the general public to recognize the profound consequences of an aging population, the University of South Florida's Policy Exchange Center on Aging (FPECA) and School of Aging Studies have developed geo-coded county-level population maps displaying the percentage of residents who are 65 years of age or older in every Florida county from 2010 through 2040. Using US Census Bureau medium population projections, these maps display Florida county-level aging in 5-year cohorts with filters that allow viewers to see projected population aging by gender as well as race and ethnicity (white, black, Hispanic).
