Abstract

This study centers upon the role of kin in elderly amenity migration and is based upon interviews with recent migrants to Sun City, Arizona. Migrants who maintained long-term ties to the community before moving usually relied upon relatives for these ties and thus for migration information. Those who had weak or nonexistent ties usually relied upon friends or the community's developer for information about the area. Relatives were not considered to be an essential reason for choosing the community, even among those who were dependent upon relatives for information.
