Abstract
The extent to which elderly winter migrants compete with the permanently settled older population for local resources and services is examined. Data are from a 1979-1980 survey conducted in Tucson, Arizona, and from an analysis of peak load fluctuations reported by agencies providing health care and social and other services. The findings reveal that older seasonal migrants tend to be socially independent individuals whose use of locally subsidized resources is slight.
