How do your community ratings work?
Community ratings are centered on a town or city’s attractiveness to age 50+ individuals, including data on (i) general livability, (ii) access to education, employment, housing, and transportation, and (iii) community engagement. User submitted ratings like yours are weighted 50 percent, while third-party research including The Milken Institute’s is weighted 50 percent.
