America's Youngest and Oldest Cities 2014

Are you and other residents doing what it takes to put your city on the top cities list for staying young or growing old too fast? We analyzed RealAge Test data from more than 600,000 people living in 50 of the largest metropolitan areas to determine the Youngest & Oldest Cities in America ranking. Factors included things like cholesterol, blood pressure, nutrition habits, smoking, marital status, stress, sleep, social life, employment status and more.
