Poor Physical Health among Older Adults

Finger Lakes Region

This chart is based on BRFSS survey data and displays the percentage of older adults in the Finger Lakes who reported 14+ days over the past month when their physical health was not good. The "18+" bar enables a comparison of the older adults to the overall adult population. While there were no significant differences in prevalence among the four age groups presented, this chart still illustrates that 1 in every 6 or 7 older adults perceived their physical health to be poor and may be in need of various medical supports or services.
