The aging of Minnesota residents
The deepening coloration depicts the percentage of Minnesotans over age 65 as a percentage of the population in a county. I would doubt that this phenomenon is peculiar to Minnesota. The data from which the graphic was compiled comes from the U.S. Census Bureau, so there may be a national map available somewhere.
There are a variety of important implications from demographic changes of this magnitude. Very interesting.
