By 2050, 50-plus households will account for 60 cents of every dollar spent in Maryland, says AARP in “The Longevity Economy Outlook: Maryland.”


“In 2018 [the most recent data available], the 50-plus population accounted for 36% of Maryland’s population, yet contributed 39%—or $163 billion—of the state’s total GDP. Their activities also supported 1.6 million jobs and generated $116 billion in wages and salaries. Their contribution to GDP is forecast to reach $487 billion in 2050.”


Is your organization attracting 50+ consumers, investors and employees? You will find strategic data in the AARP report at https://www.aarp.org/content/dam/aarp/research/surveys_statistics/econ/2020/longevity-economy-outlook-maryland.doi.10.26419-2Fint.00044.021.pdf.
