    Correct Answer
    A. The aged population (65 and older)
    Explanation
    The aged population (65 and older) is forecasted to grow rapidly over the next decade among people experiencing homelessness. This can be attributed to factors such as the increasing number of older adults who are unable to afford housing, lack of affordable healthcare and support services, and limited access to social security benefits. As the baby boomer generation continues to age, the number of elderly individuals experiencing homelessness is expected to rise significantly.

    • D. 

      25 years

    Correct Answer
    C. 20 years
    Explanation
    The aged homeless population experiences physical challenges that cause their medical age to be 20 years older than their chronological age. This suggests that their bodies have undergone significant wear and tear, possibly due to a lack of access to proper healthcare, poor living conditions, or other factors associated with homelessness. As a result, their overall health and well-being may be significantly compromised, making them appear much older than their actual age.

This indicates that a significant majority of individuals seeking shelter in the county belonged to racial or ethnic minority groups.

    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the options listed are common causes of homelessness. Low wage employment and losing a job can make it difficult for individuals to afford housing. Fleeing violence can force individuals to leave their homes and become homeless. Health crises, such as medical emergencies or mental health issues, can also lead to homelessness.

Finally, a history of racial and ethnic discrimination in various aspects of life, including rental housing, incarceration, and mental health treatment, can contribute to homelessness.
