A series of detailed tables with data on a wide range of demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of people 55 and older. Topics include marital status, educational attainment, nativity and citizenship status, labor force and employment status, occupation, earnings, poverty and housing tenure. The data, collected by the Current Population Survey, pertain to the noninstitutionalized population and are shown for selected age groups at the national and regional levels only. Note: These numbers are not from the 2010 Census. In addition, these estimates should not be confused with similar estimates based on the American Community Survey <http://www.census.gov/acs/www/>; where the topics overlap, the Census Bureau recommends that users consult tables based on the American Community Survey when data are not needed for national historical time series analyses.
