If you were looking for a neighborhood with older residents, you’d probably think of a Florida location before anywhere else, and you might be right. Six of the 10 Census tracts with the oldest 2026 projected median age – but not all — are in the Sunshine State. A TractIQ analysis of data compiled by Easy Analytics Software Inc. finds the oldest expected neighborhood in the nation will soon be in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Montgomery County, Md.
A Census tract often approximates neighborhood boundaries and typically contains between 1,200 and 8,000 people. The TractIQ analysis found the median age in the Maryland tract, located in an age-restricted community north of the capital, is expected to be 80.7 by 2026. It’s expected to be trailed by tracts in Lee County, Fla. (79.8); Hillsborough County, Fla. (79.5); Queens County, N.Y. (79.2); and Palm Beach, Fla. (79.1).
