There are over 51.2 million people in the US who have some level of disability - 18 percent of the population. According to a recent AP poll, 1 in 6 baby boomers are expected to live into their 90's. According to a July 19, 2011 article in The Miami Herald, Florida was one of only seven states with a median age over 40. Florida has five of the top 10 cities with the highest median age and our elderly population is growing at a faster clip than our 19-younger population. As our population continues to age, these numbers will increase. ADA compliance is not only something you should do for others - it's for yourself as well.
