Where do older Americans live

Metlife's monthly QuickFacts newsletter is a good round-up of the interesting articles published about older people. The above chart shows where Americans over the age of 55+ live. As you can see, only 3% live in age-qualified housing. The 21% who live in 'other' 55+ communities is a confusing since this is housing areas where the majority of people are older. How the hell you work that out I don't know.

There is no doubt that MetLife is head and shoulders above other financial institutions in the way it covers the older market. Dick Stroud
