Which WNY community has the most senior citizens?

May 31, 2013 Updated May 31, 2013 at 9:13 AM EDT

Business First is answering a monthlong series of questions about Western New York, based on the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Today's question: Which Western New York community has the largest percentage of senior citizens (age 65 or older)?

Click here (or on the hashmark logo to the right) to find the answer.

We've collected statistics for all 54 Western New York cities and towns with populations above 5,000. (Villages are subdivisions of towns, so they are not included in these standings.)

The slideshow (which runs from lowest value to highest) offers a quick and easy way to scan the rankings of all 54 cities and towns. All figures are from the five-year version of the Census Bureau's 2011 American Community Survey, the current source of federal data at the local level.
