Abstract

Explores the migration patterns of people older than age 70. If the life course perspective on retirement migration is correct, then this older category should be somewhat less inclined to enter the key national destination states and more likely to be moving toward the usual sending states, unlike younger retirees. The Asset and Health Dynamics Among the Oldest Old (AHEAD) Study is critical to this study goal because it contains an oversample of Florida residents older than age 70. Respondents were interviewed in 1993 and again in 1995. The older movers who were identified tend to move locally, or within the state, but those who migrate across state lines are more often leaving Florida than entering it, as suggested by the life course theory.
