Although freedom increases with retirement, income tends to do the opposite. This report aims to address something that most retirees take into consideration: finding the perfect location to maximize happiness and funds. Retirement is all about planning: how and where does one want to spend their golden years?

Data sources for this report include statistics from the U.S. Census, FBI crime databases, and the American Association of Medical Colleges report. ChamberofCommerce.org excluded cities with populations under 10,000 and considered a total of 435 cities. Variables include the population percentage over the age of 65 (as well as how many of those are retirees), overall poverty rates, median housing costs, percentage of graduates with bachelor’s degree or higher, and crime-related statistics per city (violent and non-violent crime rates, and available officers per capita).
