The communities include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing Care, and Memory Care. To provide people looking for guidance on CCRCs with a comprehensive resource for informed decision making, Statista and Newsweek have partnered for the first time to award America’s Best Continuing Care Retirement Communities 2024.

- National Online Surveys: Surveys from medical professionals (e.g., registered nurses, therapists, and physicians) and staff working in the management/administration, acquaintances of residents and residents living in CCRCs, etc.
- Quality Dimension Score: For each recommended CCRC, participants were asked to rate the eight quality dimensions on a scale from 1 to 10.
