It seems as though Florida is the best state for retirement, having a senior population of almost seventeen percent. The average senior population for the whole USA is about eleven percent. Must be Florida's balmy weather and fine restaurants drawing them in. 

The list below shows the percentage of each state's population who are 65 years of age or older.

These figures are based on recent estimates from the American Seniors Association and the United States Census Bureau.
