Exhibit 13-12 is a chart that shows the percent of the U.S. population under 17 years and 55 and over. The vertical axis measures percentages from 20 to 27 in increments of 1 percent. The horizontal axis measures 3 years: 1990, 2000, and the projected numbers for 2010. In 1990 and 2000, the percent of those under 17 stayed at around 24.5, but is projected to drop to 23 by 2010. The percent of those over 55 was 22.3 in 1990 and 22.8 in 2000, but is expected to rise to 26.7 by 2010.
