Abstract

This article describes recent patterns of interstate migration in the United States for the general population and contrasts them with those of the elderly population. An analysis of age-specific migration rates, of multiregional life tables, and of population projections illuminates the process of interregional redistribution of both populations and supports the findings of studies of elderly migration that have identified the remarkably dominant position held by the three retirement destination states of Florida, California, and Arizona.
