Methodology: The 50 Best U.S. Cities to Grow Old and Retire
The Milken Institute found that how well or how poorly people age in America can be linked to specific indicators including general livability, health care, transportation, convenience, living arrangements (including factors such as housing costs and supportive living services) and community engagement.
Some indicators, such as general liveability, health care, wellness and financial security, are more important for aging adults. Other factors, such as education, transportation or employment, are considered less important for seniors, so are weighted less heavily in the Milken study’s final results.
The Milken study includes both cities and metro regions that may extend beyond a core urban area.
