Are the aged concentrated in the inner-city? Are they confined to lower value housing in older neighborhoods? Although the spatial pattern of the elderly in Toledo, Ohio, is dissimilar from that of the nonelderly, they are widely distributed throughout the city. The associations between the location of the elderly and variables such as distance to the Central Business District, age of neighborhood, value of housing, and multiple-family dwelling units are statistically significant. However, these associations are weak and at no time between 1940 and 1970 are more than 40% of the variations in the aged's distribution explained.
