Aging, Migration, and Local Communities: The Views of 60+ Residents and Community Leaders
AARP has released a report that examines why some older Americans move to certain communities and why others stay in their current homes and communities. The report is based on an analysis of U.S. Census data and a survey that included telephone interviews with 1,201 residents aged 60 and older who live in counties where the population is aging and 149 community leaders. According to an AARP press release, in identifying local government priorities over the next five years, a large percentage of those residents 60 and older focused on transportation and housing needs--less traffic congestion, better transportation, better quality roads, and affordable housing needs.
