Abstract

The United States is in the midst of profound demographic changes. The proportion of the elderly population (65+) in the country is projected to increase from a current 13% of the population to just over 20% of the population by 2030. Considering that the decision regarding living arrangements is of great consequence to the well-being of the elderly and their families, understanding the factors that influence this decision is of great value. In this paper, we exploit the changes in state income tax preferences over time to examine the impact of such tax policies on the living arrangements of the elderly population.
