The data experts at FindTheHome have created a “retirement index” for every U.S. county based on five factors:
- The quality of local hospitals, nursing homes and home health centers.
- The number of universities, recreational facilities, libraries and parks per capita
- Grocery stores and restaurants per capita plus WalkIQ
- The percentage of the population over 65 with a college degree.
- Real estate market health, median sales price, properties with rent under $1,500/month and more
