In case anyone missed it in the gloomy thread about South Carolina's being one of the worst states for retirees, I'm re-posting this relatively good news on the subject.

And SC is disproportionately attracting this demographic. I don't want to see my home state turn into the next Florida in this regard.

Well I'm 54, so unless I plan on leaving the state within the next decade, I don't mind being in the top 50 metros for aging people according to Milken. I think the state needs to focus on attracting and retaining lots more young people and let the proportions take care of themselves.

That's what I'm saying--specifically young college-educated professionals.

No surprise SC attracting older people...it appeals very much to them. I feel bad for anyone under 40 who still lives there.
