AGING POPULATION The Aging Population of Thousand Oaks, California Gerontology is the study of aging of the following aspects: biological, psychological, and social. These three aspects help shape who we are and the decisions we make. As we age and grow older, we will take on more responsibilities to not only take care of ourselves and our family members, but also to provide the best options in preserving our health. Deciding where to raise a family or spend your retirement days is a crucial choice and as a result, many adults will research certain cities to see which is the best option based on many factors.

As expected, the majority of residents make at least $75K with 18% of individuals making over $200K, 14% making between $150K to $200K, 9% making between $125K to $150K, 11% making between $100K to $125K, and finally 12% making between $75k to $100K (Thousand Oaks, California (CA)).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
