Home on the Range: Aging in Place in Rural Kansas
László J. Kulcsár, Ben Bolender
This study is a product of research on aging in place in the rural Midwest. Here we take the perspective of social demography to investigate long-term trends of aging in rural Kansas. Using county level historical statistics and in-depth analysis of the 2000 Census, we put these trends into the context of aging in the United States, and present a statistical analysis of aging and economic development.
