Ocean county no longer among the oldest in NJ

August 3, 2022

New affordable housing in Ocean county is attracting a younger crowd. More retirees are electing to stay in their homes rather than move to the 55+ communities that drove up the median age in the southern part of the state. Dean Emeritus James W. Hughes discusses the factors that entice different age groups to move, or stay put, in the Garden State.

“Housing affordability has always been there,” said James Hughes, dean emeritus of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. “It’s a many decade phenomenon.”
