A Peek Into Your Crystal Ball

Our Future Selves is an interactive look into the crystal ball of our future.  From the Columbia University Grad School of Journalism, you can see at what your future will look like for the next 50 or so years.  This is an easy to use graphic depiction of ethnicity, health and wealth data to see how we may fare in our part of the world.

Few changes will have as seismic an effect on the United States as the rate at which it’s growing old. The unprecedented proportion of older adults means change in every corner of our lives: our families, our workplaces, our communities. Columbia News21’s Brave Old World site, going live on August 15, looks at our collective future.

So what does this mean to me? It says I really do need to learn Spanish, stop eating those wonderful salty oatmeal cookies, and add some more walking and yoga practice. With further thought, I can see opportunities for working with the people around me in my future based on their demographic needs.

Enter your data and see what’s in store for you.  Thanks, Jason Alcorn, Michael Keller and Emily Liedel, fellows at Columbia University.
