In this bulletin, we document the rural-urban differences in population age structure in terms of the share of the total population that is senior; the rate of aging of the population in terms of two measures (the growth in the share of the population that is senior and the growth in the number of seniors); the number of communities that are aging by each of these measures; and selected characteristics of the aging communities as compared to communities that are not aging.
