Infographic: Rate of Living Alone by Rurality and Age

A new infographic from the University of Minnesota’s Rural Health Research Center found that the likelihood of living alone increases with age in both urban and rural areas. An estimated 28.2% of people ages 65 and older in nonmetropolitan (rural) counties live alone, compared to only 6.6% of people ages 18-34 in these same areas. This highlights the importance of place-based approaches to supporting seniors who live alone. #covid-19
