The purpose of this project is twofold: first, to develop a chartbook providing a profile of older adults (age 65 and older) in rural areas and next, to assess where in the U.S. rural residents age 85 and older (the “oldest old”) are most likely to live, what rural counties have experienced the fastest growth of the population age 85 and older, and what strategies are in place or are possible for supporting this population in aging in place.
