  • Aging in Place
    Date: 10/2022
    From 2013 to 2017, rural counties had higher shares of population age 65 and older than urban counties (18.1% vs 14.3%). This Recap examines aging in place as it relates to social engagement, living alone, long-term care preferences, and nursing home availability.
  • Rural Communities: Age, Income, and Health Status
    Date: 11/2018
    While studies discuss the implications of income or age on health-seeking behavior, health status, access, or utilization of care, it is imperative to recognize what this means for older and lower-income rural communities. This Recap identifies rural disparities in age, health status, and income.
