Curious about your neighborhood's livability? Well wonder no more! Recently, AARP launched an online tool that enables anyone to check the “livability score” of almost any location in the United States. As an initiative of the Public Policy Institute, the Livability Index was created to measure the quality of life in American communities across the dimensions of housing, transportation, neighborhood characteristics, environment, health, opportunity, and civic and social engagement.

The Livability Index is not only interesting in the sense that you can learn more about your neighborhood, but also in the ways it can lead and focus efforts that will make your neighborhood a better place to live.

So what does your neighborhood score in livability, and where can you get involved to help make it more livable for generations to come? Just type in your address here  and find out.
