Geography of Social Isolation

Mapping of Social Isolation in Older Adults

Social isolation in older adults is known to have a geographic component. This interactive mapping tool allows you to visualize measures of social isolation and loneliness in older adults in the United States. Through the maps, you can observe relationships between social isolation and other state and county-level characteristics, such as demographics and health behaviors. Examples include income, internet/broadband access, and the percent of adults aged 65 and older who live alone.

This tool was developed by NORC at the University of Chicago for AARP Foundation with support from United Health Foundation.
