Determinants of Residential Location Decisions Among the Pre-Elderly In Central Ohio

This paper examines the differences and similarities in residential movement patterns and motivations among young households (respondents under the age of 50), pre-elderly households (age 50–64) and elderly households (age 65 and over) in Franklin County, the central county of the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area. The patterns are mapped and the motivations and household characteristics are explored through descriptive analysis and discriminant analysis. Most expectations are supported and the pre-elderly are seen to be a distinct group with some similarities to each of the other two age cohorts, but also with some unique characteristics and interests.
