Housing America's Older Adults - 2018: A Supplement to the State of the Nation Report
More than half of US households are now headed by someone at least 50 years of age. These 65 million older households are highly diverse in their living situations, financial resources, health and functional abilities, and life stages, and thus require different types of housing to meet their needs and preferences. Affordable, accessible housing located in age-friendly communities and linked to health supports is in particularly short supply. This report provides statistical data on the current and future problems older people in the US face in the area of housing.
