Publication Abstract

PDF Frey, William H. 2003. "Boomers and Seniors in the Suburbs: Aging Patterns in Census 2000." Brookings Institution: The Living Cities Census Series January

This Living Cities Census survey reveals that the suburbs of major metropolitan areas are aging faster than the nation as a whole. Southern and western "Sunbelt" suburbs grew older as they attracted unprecedented numbers of Boomers, pre-retirees and seniors; northern "Rustbelt" suburbs aged as their under-35 populations dwindled.
