The Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index (Elder Index), was developed by the Gerontology Institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Elder Index is a measure of the income that older adults need to meet their basic needs and age in place with dignity. The Elder Index is specific to household size, location, housing tenure, and health status. It includes the cost of:

  • Housing
  • Health Care
  • Transportation
  • Food
  • Miscellaneous Essentials

In a previous contract, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. built a website that enables users to query the Elder Index data for a location of their choice. In this current contract, we are maintaining and improving the website and providing strategic communications support.
