Literature focusing on the intraurban location patterns of the elderly, based on 1970 and earlier data, generally suggests that they are concentrated in the inner city and have good access to services. Recent literature and data from the 1980 Census of Population and Housing suggest that the location of the elderly in urban areas is changing. In a case study of Toledo, Ohio, concentrations of elderly increased in the periphery of the city, while the inner city lost elderly between 1970 and 1980. Although Title III-C nutrition services are accessible now to the inner city residents, the periphery of the city is poorly served.
