Buzz60’s Elizabeth Keatinge tells us about new report that tells us where the oldest people live in the United States.
The American Community Survey is an annual survey run by the Census Bureau to allow the government, corporate and academic researchers, and anyone who is curious about demographics to better understand the US population. Among many other subjects, the ACS asks the age of each member of a given household.
Using the ACS estimates from 2013 to 2017 for places with at least a 1,000-person population, excluding college campuses and military bases, Business Insider made the above map showing the town in each state with the highest median age.
Many of the towns with high median ages are retirement communities and other locales targeted at older adults, like Leisure World, Maryland.
