The purpose of this research was to investigate the details of assisted living arrangements for the elderly and determine whether and how the tenure question on the 2010 Census could be revised to accommodate reporting of assisted living arrangements. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 21 individuals or small groups that represented experts in seniors' housing, both in the private sector and in government. Five assisted living facilities were chosen for site visits. Based on this review, the current tenure question seems adequate for most residents in assisted living facilities. A potential wording of a new response category for the tenure question was presented, although the recommendation was made that the small number of people for whom the new category was relevant did not warrant its inclusion in a housing unit and a group quarter. Because of the vast differences in state regulations concerning these facilities, it was recommended that assisted living facilities not be grouped as a particular type of housing, but rather they be listed as housing units or group quarters based on a case-by-case evaluation of the living arrangements of the residents.">
