Facing Maine’s Demographic Challenges: The Fate of the Nation’s Oldest State

Facing Maine’s Demographic Challenges: The Fate of the Nation’s Oldest State
The Camden Conference presents Charles Lawton on Thursday, December 7 at 6:30 pm at the Rockland Public Library. His talk is titled Facing Maine’s Demographic Challenges: The Fate of the Nation’s Oldest State. This event is free and open to all. 
Maine is the "oldest” state in the nation, as measured by median age. Maine’s "lead” in this metric has been increasing.  This talk is intended to present the basic demographic data—both for Maine alone and how Maine compares to other states and the national average—and to explore the implications of our changing demographic structure for the state’s economy, health care, education and taxes.Charles Lawton
