How Livable is Your Community?
The AARP Livability Index: Great Neighborhoods for All Ages scores every neighborhood and community in the United States for services and amenities that affect people’s lives. Measures taken into account include housing, transportation, opportunities for social engagement and more – all of which are designed to support residents as they age.
Developed in 2015 by the AARP Public Policy Institute, the tool is able “to help evaluate community policies, compare communities and measure livability.” It also can be used to help identify gaps between what communities have and what residents need to thrive. In June 2018, the index was relaunched with updated data and site features.
