2019 UN World Population Report

1) World population continues to grow slightly, but the rate of global population growth is at the lowest level since at least 1950.

2) Global population growth rates are unevenly distributed. Developed nations (including the US, Japan, Western Europe) suffer from alarming declines in fertility rates, while developing countries are experiencing rapid population growth.

The 47 least developed countries in the world (mostly in Africa) are the fastest growing, and just NINE countries are expected to make up HALF of global population growth over the next three decades.

3) Global population is aging at an unprecedented rate. Last year, for the first time in recorded history, people aged 65 and older around the world outnumbered children under the age of 5.

In the United States, the Social Security Administration has already reported that its trust funds will run out of money in 15 years, AND that the worker-to-retiree ratio will fall below its minimum threshold this year.

And with the US grappling with the lowest fertility rate EVER recorded, this trend will only worsen.

Most of Europe is in a similar position, with spiraling costs and record low fertility rates. A number of countries (like Italy, Greece) have already been forced to make substantial pension reforms to avoid insolvency.

Even Russia had to implement an unpopular overhaul of its pension plan last October by raising the retirement age.

According to the UN report I mentioned earlier, Japan’s worker-to-retiree ratio is just 1.8! Remember, the US is in deep trouble at 2.7 workers per retiree. Japan’s ratio is significantly worse than that.

And to drive the point home, just look at some of the numbers:

- Japan has more people over the age of 80 than it has children under the age of 10.

- There are 2.85 million children aged 0 to 3 in Japan. But almost 5.2 million aged 95 or over.

- Japan’s biggest diaper maker (Unicharm) has been selling more adult diapers than baby diapers since 2011.

Ten years ago the US worker-to-retiree ratio was 3.2. And the Social Security Administration projected that its trust funds would remain solvent through 2037. So the crisis point was 28 years away.

Ten years later, the ratio has fallen to 2.7 workers per retiree. And the trust funds are expected to run out of money in 2034. So now the problem is only 15 years away.

US Elderly Population

For the first time in history, according to population scientists, the number of people aged 65 and older will outnumber children younger than 5 worldwide by 2020. That's next year.

One out of every five Americans -- approximately 72 million people -- will be 65 years or older by 2030. That's nearly double the number of older Americans in 2000.

Naturally, as a population ages, the workforce becomes smaller and produces less. That's
especially true in places where fertility rates aren't enough to replace the outgoing workers.

Meanwhile, the younger generations that are here have much different consuming patterns than their parents -- and that's causing huge swings for thousands of companies ... both on the up- and downside.

A huge demographic shift meets a cash-gushing investment vehicle

10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day (hitting 65 years of age).

Right now, that means there are roughly 40 million Americans aged over 65. That's about 13% of the population.

By 2050, that number will more than double to around 88.5 million.

Of our elderly population, about 5.7 million Americans are over age 85.

By 2050, this number will more than triple to 19 million.

And a full 50% of them will need assistance with daily functioning which, in most cases, means an assisted living facility or a skilled nursing home.

The cost for those services can run anywhere from $60,000 to $180,000 per year.

The bottom line: we have a massive and growing demand for health-related services for our Boomers. This will include retirement communities, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and mixed use planned communities that market, in part, to senior citizens.

With 73 million people, Millennials now account for 22% of the U.S. population and have overtaken the baby boomers.

The most widely used definition of a Millennial is someone born between 1981 and 1996. That puts them between 23 and 38 years old right now ...

What's more, they are at a similar point to the Boomers after World War II as they begin to form families and buy houses.

Millennials are different than prior generations -- most notably, they've delayed marriage and starting families, and many have continued living with their parents far longer than past generations.

Many Millennials rented or lived at home longer than previous generations. Even last year, 15% of Millennials still lived with their parents. At the same age, only 9% of Gen Xers lived with their parents.

With Millennials starting families, making more money than ever and starting to move more frequently, housing is my favorite way to profit from the country's largest generation.
