Do Older Adults Have Equitable Access to Livable Communities?
Do older adults in the US have equal access to highly livable neighborhoods? What makes a neighborhood livable, and to what extent does access vary by income, race, or ethnicity? In a special session of our Housing Research Seminar, we will release a new report from the Center and AARP which examines the AARP Livability Index and finds that access to the most livable communities is not equitable, especially for older adults, and particularly for lower-income older adults and older communities of color. The report will be presented by Jennifer Molinsky, a senior research associate at the Center, followed by a panel with Rodney Harrell (AARP Public Policy Institute) and Kathleen Otte (US Department of Health and Human Services).
