Older Adults Increasingly Living in Suburban Neighborhoods

Posted February 21st, 2019

Households headed by older adults are increasingly located in low-density suburbs, according to the latest Housing America’s Older Adults report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard. In a growing number of suburban neighborhoods across the country, adults age 50 and over comprise a majority of the population. Overall, the report found that the number of people older than 65 grew from 35.0 million in 2000 to 46.1 million in 2016. Half this growth—just under 6 million persons—occurred in lower density metropolitan area census tracts, while an additional 13 percent occurred outside of metro areas.  Get the full story.
