GfK's Map of the Month for March shows the distribution of senior citizen households at the level of Germany's urban and rural districts (source: GfK Demographics 2015, Germany). The highest share of senior households is typically in rural areas, particularly in eastern Germany. The highest share of this demographic can be found in the urban district of Suhl in Thuringia: 46 percent of all household heads in this location are 60 years or older.
More results can be found in our press release on the study GfK Demographics 2015.
