This study identifies differences in unmet mobility needs among older adults by rurality. It uses data from the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS), limiting analyses to respondents who had not moved since baseline (average housing tenure of 27 years; n = 3343). We conducted bivariate and multivariate analyses to detect rural/urban differences in unmet mobility needs, adjusting for socio-demographics, health status, and housing characteristics.
