— Rhode Island's Healthy Aging Data —

The 2020 Rhode Island Healthy Aging Data Report is designed to help residents, agencies, providers and governments understand the older adults who live in their cities and towns – their ages, living arrangements, health status, strengths and vulnerabilities.

The report allows readers to compare 41 communities within the state on healthy aging indicators – from chronic conditions like hypertension, diabetes and obesity to healthy aging behaviors like diet, exercise and immunizations. Funded by Tufts Health Plan Foundation, the data was compiled and analyzed by researchers at the Gerontology Institute of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston and engaged key stakeholders in Rhode Island to contextualize findings.
