Friday Factday: AARP Livability Index for 2018

As part of its Livable Communities initiative, the American Association of Retired People (AARP) recently released its 2018 Livability Index results.  The highest level indicator reported in the results is the Livability Score, a value between 0 and 100 representing a combined assessment of seven broad categories: housing, neighborhood, transportation, environment, health, engagement, and opportunity.  The score is calculated using data at the neighborhood (census block, block group, tract, or high school district), city, county, and metro levels.  The score is then reported at the neighborhood, city, county, and state level to help bring attention to issues affecting the livability of communities.
