Statewide, Idaho’s 65-and-older population grew by 31 percent from 2010 to last year. In the map above, darker colors show higher growth rates. Blaine County’s 65+ population increased the most in the state, by nearly 58 percent. Ada County’s population grew by 47 percent, and Canyon County’s by 37 percent. Only one county saw a decline for the age group — Clark County, with a drop of 1.6 percent. But that rate represents a population of three.

Idaho’s 65 and over population is booming. That’s going to cost us all more, but pay us more, too.
