Aging and Migration: Three Reports

As America ages, people age 60+ will make up a larger percentage of the population in many communities. For those places experiencing fast in-migration of older residents this future is fast arriving. In contrast, many areas have stable older populations that are aging in their communities.

These twin phenomena of aging - older migration and aging in community - are explored in three reports:

  • Retirement Migration in the 2000 Census examines the widely held myth that Americans often move when they retire.

  • Aging, Migration, and Local Communities: The Views of 60+ Residents and Community Leaders reports the detailed survey research results from telephone interviews conducted with 1,201 people age 60+ and 149 leaders of business, government, religious, education, and social services sectors in four types of communities.

  • Aging, Migration, and Local Communities: The Views of 60+ Residents and Community Leaders An Executive Summary is a synthesis of the findings from the previously mentioned reports.

All interviews were conducted for AARP by GfK NOP from September 15th, 2005 to January 9th, 2006. Further information about the study may be obtained by contacting Linda Barrett at 202-434-6197 or Robert Prisuta at 202-434-6293.
