Shimberg Center Launches New Website: Housing Florida's Older Adults

11 April 2018

Shimberg ElderDataSiteThe Shimberg Center for Housing Studies has recently launched a new website:

Housing Florida’s Older Adults: By The Numbers. 

Florida is home to 3.3 million people aged 65 and older. By 2030, this number will exceed 6.3 million. This new website shares data about Florida’s older adults and their needs for safe, affordable housing. The website provides state and county-level data on demographics, financial status, health, and housing, with a focus on populations aged 65 and older. Information can be accessed through an interactive map of Florida counties, or downloaded as a spreadsheet. 

Housing Florida’s Elders: By the Numbers is produced by the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies. The Shimberg Center was established at the University of Florida in 1988 to promote safe, decent and affordable housing and related community development throughout the state of Florida.

For more information about affordable housing supply and demand in Florida, visit the Florida Housing Data Clearinghouse. To learn about UF’s research on design and policy to improve safety, environmental quality, active living and social connectedness for older adults, visit the Vital by Design initiative.
