That misses most of the 64 million-plus grandparents, including a large group of "midlife" About 60 percent of all adults 60 and older are grandparents, said Wendy D. Manning, who with colleagues analyzed the most recent nationally representative data to reach the estimate of 64 million - an undercount, she noted, because it doesn't include all those living in institutional settings.
