Living in the same home and community for a prolonged period of time is associated with increased social cohesion and better health outcomes. However, it may also be indicative of limited opportunities for mobility, especially for individuals with fewer financial resources and in communities with limited housing supply. This policy brief identifies rural/urban differences in residential stability and examines rural/urban differences in regional, socio-demographic, and health characteristics associated with living in the same home for more than 20 years.
