How livable is your city, town or neighborhood? Will it continue to have everything you need to live comfortably and remain independent as you age? AARP’s Public Policy Institute set out to help individuals answer those questions when they developed the new AARP Livability Index. The online tool is a first of its kind resource that allows individuals to determine how well their communities are meeting their current and future needs. Anyone can use the tool, including residents, policy makers and the private sector, to measure how their location – down to the neighborhood level – rates across a wide range of metrics that reflect user friendliness, and customize their search based on their own priorities.

People, policy makers and the private sector can use the Livability Index to measure how their location – down to the neighborhood level – rates across a comprehensive range of metrics that reflect the resident experience.
